Light Waves II. By Charlotte Cullen


Original Oil Painting on Box Canvas by Charlotte Cullen

Size: 36” x 36”

‘My work explores opticality, through light, shadow, colour and pattern.

In this body of work I have focused on the illusions created through light and shadows and what effects they have on the viewer’s perception. Through large gestural brush marks, spanning across the entire width of the canvas, I explore how the surrounding light reflects onto the surface and gives

the illusion of depth and movement. The highlights and shadows, which appear to be there, are in fact just as a result of the reflecting light. I find it fascinating how we can be deceived into thinking we see something that does not actually exist in the physical world. The way that our perception can be radically distorted, superseding our logical mind.’
