Tanizaki Light (I, II, III)

Oil on paper, 2016, 24"w x 36"h (each)

These paintings are an investigation into the writings and theories of Jun’ichurō Tanizaki on the structure of light and shadows and their relation to meditations on spaces. The process of creating these paintings was primarily structural and architectural. A box was built from clear plastic, filled with water, colored sheets of water-resistant paper, and shards of mirrors. A light was shone from multiple angles to create different environments from these elements, which are depicted nonrepresentationally in the paintings.
