Event DescriptionArtist's Statement
Glowing whites and contrasting soft deep blacks are central dramatic elements in my work and hence the show title of 'Chiarascuro'.
I treat my canvas like a stage set with simplified shapes and forms deliberately placed to produce an artificial landscape. I try to convey the feeling we have when watching the curtain rise in a darkened theatre auditorium, when for that brief moment, we suspend disbelief and allow ourselves to be transported into another reality.
