Medici Villa, Rome 1992
1 painting shows black square on a blue background. 1 profile spot projects a square of blue light
on the black square overflowing on the background of blue paint.
Black absorbs blue light while the blue pigment reflects the blue light strong.
Colored light splits.
This gives the impression that the light comes from behind as if there was a hole in the painting.
When a viewer passes between the profile spot and painting
it casts a shadow circumscribed black square. This reinforces the perception of a window.
1 profile spot cut, 1 filter, 1 painting, black and blue acrylic matte
Painting dimensions: 200 cm x 200 cm
