Light hidden behind shadow


The light hidden itself behind shadow, escaping the rigors of reality.

The shadow tells us the consequences of a gesture, an action of a moment. The shadow exists to tell us the light. With it's distorted version of reality, defines lines of the action and communication of the light.



Oil on canvas by Laura Tedeschi - Light hidden behind shadow

Las sombras son absolutamente necesarias para saber apreciar la luz!
Como necesario es apreciar tu obra, Laura.

Un soggetto originalissimo. Pensa che mia figlia è riuscita a trovare una vasca di questo tipo per la sua casa ed è felicissima. Sono difficili da trovare, ma ce ne sono ancora. Elvi

MAITE RUBERT said...

No se te resiste ningún tema, ningún lugar.Un rincón, tan insignificante,cobra interés cuando lo transforman tus pinceles.La luz de esta estancia nos regala colores preciosos.
Saludos.

dianne said...

Such a beautiful painting dear Laura, I love the softness of the greens and other colours which are so subtle and just visible which add to the beauty and of course the shadows...brilliant
work dear friend!

Anthony Duce said...

Your understanding of the light created some wonderful shadows, and colors. I like the words too, very much.

Lisa Graham Art said...

It is amazing to me that you can make so many things look lovely...a sink...and a bathtub. Nicely done!

Sagace ricordo di tempi che a me non sembrano neanche tanto lontani!

Manel said...

Laura, che soggetto originale per incantarci con le tue luci e le tue ombre! Bellissimi i colori che hai scelto. Anch'io sono un fan delle luci, delle ombre e dei loro contrasti, penso che diano la vita al dipinto, senza di loro.....che tristezza! Abbracio.

Two Tigers said...

What you say is so true, and such a beautiful painting to say it even better without words! There is such a quiet intimacy to this vision - the solitary moments one spends in the bath, thinking, relaxing, letting the day's worries dissolve and drain away with the water...

Rodney van den Beemd said...

Beautiful colours and textures Laura, BRAVO!!!!

luciana mangione said...

Che lavoro affascinante! non importa quale soggetto scegli, esprimi sempre un forte sentimento

Andrew Finnie said...

Hey Laura, well were you last night when I went to the studio and painted a really bad painting? :) I wish I had come here first and seen this. Oh well I never thought I would be calling a bathtub beautifil (unless it was Bonnard's) but the play of light, the dappled shadows - just superb!!! Gah, next time I am the studio I am coming here first for inspiration!
I hope you are well. I am back in the real world now :):) Oh I sent your site link to my old painting teacher - he will be impressed I think

see you from Ozstralia :)

"The shadow exists to tell us the light. With it's distorted version of reality, defines lines of the action and communication of the light."

I like this. Especially the first sentence. Sometimes we forget honest truths.

Hi, Laura,
Used colours, a texture and a simple composition are very impressive. Thank you for sharing!
Kind regards, Sadami

Antonio Machado said...

Olá Laura,

Harry Kent said...

You make the tub so intensely present, capture its dasein. Beautifully expressive work, laura.

A. LaRoque said...

Great work as always Laura!

Elizabeth Anderson said...

A beautiful calmness - I expect the water to start running, filling the tub with steamy water to soothe the soul.

Hugs

Crissant said...

The light controls our visual perception in a beautiful way.
The bath....it is so present in my work, but it is so much more poetic through your view.
Love to you, my dear!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Nice to see you all really very nice

erin said...

the shadow is the light's brother, the light is the shadow's sister. they are family. they are nothing without one another.

your work))) your work is but the surface. what magnitude lies beneath!
