Artwork for March, “City Lights”

It’s an oldie, but a good one! I made “City Lights” quite a few years ago, being inspired by night time lights in the city and near the Brisbane river. Some of the colours are really bright and this reflects the idea of neon lighting. There’s also a watery appearance to this piece, seen in the darker sections would could be read as buildings or water. I overlaid the central section with white dots to emphasise the notion of direct harsh and bright lights. The technique was very direct, spontaneous, with a strong sense of immediacy. This painting was always well received by viewers and I certainly enjoyed its making.
