Art Contests Accepted Artists
“Through Water” Lithography. Stoneprint. Limited edition. I consider myself as an artist belonging to the group of new realists where the human being is looked upon in a new light and painted strongly figurative. The meaning of Clair Obscure, in Italian chiaroscuro, is light in the darkness.
The Swedish cinematographer Sven Nykvist, who photographed most of Ingmar Bergman’s films, had a rule for how to create the most classical image; Less light, less color. Some of Rembrandts paintings are almost grey.
Classical paintings of that order last longer in the eye of the viewer because of their restricted use of color. That is some of the reasons why I work with plain and few earth colors and very seldom part from that rule unless it is absolutely necessary.
