The series 'ENLIGHTENING' is about 'painting in negative', extracting indigo pigment on canvas 'in the search of light' instead of adding color.
I look for creating unknown emotional spaces only experienced by the observer. Inspired by the awake of consciousness, gold brushstrokes are symbol of the sublime and deep blue is symbol of the space inside us, clean, pure and unknown as the sea abyss. I like to express when light meet the depth of inner peace and something change to my emotions.
Light blues shades and white are deep because it appears towards the inside of the canvas and not applied to the surface as usually with the painting material. The effect of indigo blue on yarn gives amazing depth to the hole canvas. Deepness of color is the canvas itself, I use a canvas made of cotton yarn dyed with indigo color.
