Dark Matter

August 6th, 2012 / No Comments »

I recently began work on a new series of enigmatic paintings which portray cars on “fire”.  Not with hot, bright flames, but rather, a dark nocturnal glowing light like bioluminescence.  I haven’t yet figured out what these images are about but I like the mood they produce.  Unfortunately these paintings are proving quite difficult to photograph.  They are very dark.  Not fully black, but they have rather subtle shades of dark blue-green.  They are dark enough, and glossy enough, to create a strong sheen on the painting’s surface.  After a lot of trial and error I seem to have come up with something of a solution, but it still requires a bit of photoshopping to get things looking properly.
