Dreams Moonbeams and Street Scenes
Oil on Canvas, 2019
80x80 cm (31.4x31.4 inch)
Executed while listening to Captain Beefheart’s bluesy album, Blue Jeans and Moonbeams, this painting Dreams Moonbeams and Street Scenes explores the illusion of depth within the flat canvas, without the use of any visual ploys. Thanks to the overlapped lines, the painting becomes an abyss of colour from which irradiates blasts of light.
Light scatters, flits noiselessly around your vision. Fast, linear blasts impacting against and across or through objects. Cutting through the night. As you wander the streets, grinning, the night is filled with music, dreams, and expectation.
