Contemporary artist Helene B. Grossmann draws on the long tradition of light painting to create works of light and color. This book presents the first comprehensive overview of her work, showing how she arrives at her compositions. Her inspiration, we see, is nature in ever-changing light. Beginning with her sketchbook, she lays out a general sense of a composition using color plates and lines; that concept is then abstracted through the application of countless layers of paint that generate the distinct glow that marks her work, giving intimations of open spaces, landscapes, and tableaus. The result, while far from any representationalism, is powerfully affective, creating lasting emotional responses in viewers.
