Influenced by minimalism movements of neoplasticism, color field, Op-Art, hard-edge painting, and post-painterly abstraction “Light Fields” is an extension of such schools of thought with an emphasis on additive color theory and the visual light spectrum. Created within digital processes “Light Fields” responds to the value of traditional physical artifacts (such as painting or sculpture) as the importance of this project lays in its non-physical properties (memory file) rather than being a tangible, physical artwork.
Also in Light Fields, I attempt to illustrate narratives through non objective forms. Though not overt, landscapes and portraiture are subtlety suggested in these compositions and color associations.
Again I refer to the tradition minimalist, non-objective art of which this project is derived from and see this project as paying homage to artists that have influenced me starting with Piet Mondrian and Johannes Itten, but in particular Mid-Late century American painters Barrett Newman, Clifford Stills, Kenneth Noland, Mark Rothko, Ellsworth Kelly, and Frank Stella.
