About this Artwork
This painting is part of a series called EPMT which are made on wooden panels, the surface and color are built up using palette knives that creates a rather smooth surface. Subtle shifts of tonalities and surface incident from the knives used provide their unique character.
This work is about subtle shifts within a shallow space. The interaction of different values of white within the structured environment speaks with a quiet voice. The minimal points of yellow line create a spark that offsets their nearly silent surroundings.
The meditative character reveals itself over time and requires attentive viewing. It makes a demand of the viewer, yet ultimately initiate a certain calm spirit.
