James White, Chiaroscuro

‘from darkness into light’

For this exhibition I have been inspired by the Baroque style, which uses contrast, exuberant detail, deep colour and surprise, to achieve a sense of awe. I have always enjoyed using clear, pure colours and the tonal contrast is my main focus in these works resulting in strong shadows and bright sunlight, making the central idea jump out from the artwork.“ James White

The  chiaroscuro technique refers to the interplay between light and dark that was used in Baroque paintings.
