Folded Light – Fire Tide


1 in stock

‘Fire Tide’ was one of the first pieces in my then new series (Spring 2019) Folded Light, it came almost as a surprise to me as the canvas began as an exploration of cobalt blue and zinc white with small traces of transparent Magenta. As the colour mood developed I sensed the need for an orange, I added a large amount of fluid colour at the top of the canvas and drew this down the painting gradually with the squeegee. Oddly the orange stayed together in a band and did not flood and dissolve into the lower paint layers. I observed a fugitive green shadow arise just bellow the orange, perhaps due to the cool cobalt blue at the base of the painting.  As the magenta had all but disappeared in the translucent whites and blue the orange brought a wonderful transition into light, I knew this was the moment to stop.
