Artist: Dave Sparkes
I am intrigued by sunlight, shadow and reflections, often painting from the “contra jour” (facing into the light) viewpoint, and strive to create an atmospheric mood in his paintings. My painting is a hybrid of impressionism and realism. True reality on two-dimensional paper is impossible, but my attempts at nevertheless trying to achieve that reality – through reconciling the world at large with his own impression of light and form – is the essence of my art.
