Inheritance - Through the Lens
Conceptually, Inheritance – Through the Lens aspires to convey in abstraction the future of our world. The painting's symbolism and style highlight a sense of environmental degradation or loss. Artistically, my intention was to explore lighting and especially how it is affected by water and atmosphere. These artworks are digital paintings and are created using Photoshop® and a Wacom® pen and tablet. This combination of software and hardware enables me to emulate a traditional style of painting with the benefit of digital post-processing techniques to accentuate my conceptual and artistic intentions.
