"Light Warrior" Painting SOLD—Too Hot to Handle!
Nov. 14, 2012 — original post
This new painting just sold, even before the paint was dry!
What do you see when you look at this painting? Do you see light energy in motion, and/or do you see the abstracted figure?
The ambiguity of form is intentional here, representing how powerful forces in our lives may be felt energetically more than seen. This fierce red figure represents the inner warrior in each of us, intently fighting his way through the darkness around him, kicking and punching out walls of a cave, ever reaching towards the light.
The initial inspiration came from a photograph of a young boy doing a karate kick, and to abstract it completely I was compelled to incorporate my growing Cubist and Futurist tendencies, which adds an extra dimension of energetics and space through time.
