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.
