Let there be light

Inspired by recent, more graphic paintings, and also by Jacqueline Humphries, I’ve begun a new* piece (based on the small study in the top row, and using an existing shaped-canvas) that will not only be high-key color in normal light AND will have fluorescent and photo-phosphorescent dimensions (*I’ve made work in this vein before– middle image top row). Fluorescent paint will certainly be a new challenge as these colors do not exist on the normal color wheel. I’ve also purchased “glow-in-the-dark” medium which gives a decidedly yellow-greenish cast. Technical challenges can be a lot of fun though!

Below are some images that demonstrate the change in appearance of the piece given the source or absence of light.
