'Moving in the Dark 2.0' 20" x 26" Multi-color Ink stippling pointillism drawing on black paper.
The 'Moving in the Dark' series, is an offshoot of my other pointillism drawings, focusing on light and shadow studies of the body. These works add playful colour light sources emitting from non typical objects acting as light sources. This lets the scene be lit in an unnatural way that adds to the abstract vibe of the pieces. In this work the aerial hoop is the light source, creating a halo of pink and blue light around all sides of the nude dancers body. This creates a dynamic symmetrical light balance.
These paintings/ drawings are created using the stippling pointillism techniques, made of thousands of tiny colour dots, overlapping to create transitions from colour to colour.
