Digital Paintings – the Rhapsody-in-Pain series

 

Visual poems that are mood pieces with abstract backgrounds mirroring an emotional condition, made more poignant by means of pen-and-ink figures that complement the atmosphere created by the digital backdrops.

 

Together, these 37 paintings form part of a collective tentatively called RHAPSODY-IN-PAIN. The first 14 pieces have been collated into a two and a half minute video that can be seen HERE. A three-minute, behind-the-scenes video, briefly explaining the techniques, and leading up to the forthcoming exhibition of prints, can be seen HERE. A video about the process produced by ALLURA can be seen HERE.
