The pieces presented for this exhibition are approaching ‘Shadows’ in a couple of ways. First, the paintings are representational of darker psychological subject matter. While we all have lighter sides, we can equally possess darker attributes. Second, these paintings express the nature of light and shadow. Light hits the figures to create a shadow. Sometimes the areas of shadow have darker colors, and can be blurred and out of focus.
