Exploring the mystique of light
As Art is the exploration of the visual medium, light is the primary element for exploitation, Distinct colours, forms, negetive spaces, compositions are realised by us due to the different ways light responds to a creation i.e. the way light reflects off the creation.
Through the ages, artists have used light consciously or otherwise in their creation. Be it the glow on the face of Ajanta frescoes, the stained glass panels of the 12th century churches or even later in the works of the impressionists.
Light has always fascinated me and has been my main inspiration. Light refracting from a crystal or jewel, light creating highlights and shadows and the intertwined mid-ranges on laid satin or sand dunes, light glimmering through the bunch of leaves captivate me. For nearly a decade and a half, I’ve been studying the dimensions of light on various surface, texture and objects, and have been experimenting and interpreting its play on canvas.
