Half spectrum, geometric escape

The observation of light is a daily practice in my work.

From physics to personal perception and appreciation, I try to explore a different point of view and translate each into a Painting.

This time I have extended the experience on a bigger scale, and also built a shaped canvas to enhance the color properties.

The light and space's relation to a 2D object such as painting on a rectangular surface is interesting but often brings me back to a screen relation ( computer, phone, iPad) which has its limitation.

By building the canvas, creating an odd shape, a reunion of circles, closer to the physical perception, the actual vision we have.

As established by Newton, the visible light spectrum is the segment of the electromagnetic spectrum that the human eye can view. More simply, this range of wavelengths is called visible light. Typically, the human eye can detect wavelengths from 380 to 700 nanometers.

I chose to exclude half of the range, meaning mainly the red. Red has such a strong impact on the human vision that even a small amount can cancel the perception of other colors and therefore the space too.

the shape comes from the idea of multiplication of this half part of the spectrum as a twisted shape, originally coming from the conic vision that we all have.
