DARK with light - is a personal project loosely based on English Pastoral
Paintings. I grew up watching my father painting landscapes in oil, since
then, I've always loved landscape paintings by Turner, Constable, Girtin
and Gainsborough. I've always been fascinated with Chiaroscuro and how the
light passing through a window interacts with the rest of a room or how the
light or sun interacts with trees, buildings or anything else in its path.
The Dark Side - While the eye is drawn to the bright areas in a
photograph, I love the interplay between the dark and light or highlight
and shadow. Mix this with some trees, nature and chaotic vegetation, and it
evokes haunting, dreamy and mysterious imagery with a nod back to the great
English pastoral painters.
