Sharing Volendam

in Volendam, The Netherlands

Today I want to share with you Volendam, an artwork of 2010 in which I took as a base the photography of Pablo Peña.
“Volendam” is an acrylic painting on canvas. I returned to the maritime theme to represent the cruise of a Chinese junk in Volendam Bay (The Netherlands). As a clear fan of chiaroscuro, I involved the artwork with an nocturnal and disturbing atmosphere, with marked and blue magenta tones, and once again blending a natural landscape with disruptive industrial elements.
Chiaroscuro in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. It is also a technical term used by artists and art historians for the use of contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modeling three-dimensional objects and figures. Similar effects in cinema and photography also are called chiaroscuro.
