This body of work is an exploration of the sfumato technique and tonalism. Sfumato is defined as “the technique of allowing tones and colors to shade gradually into one another, producing softened outlines or hazy forms.” This gradual shift in form and color is further realized in the work here through using only midtones. The result is that of the work shifting, eliding, dematerializing, and transforming before the eye and never finding complete resolution.    OIL ON PANEL 40x30  2018

This body of work is an exploration of the sfumato technique and tonalism. Sfumato is defined as “the technique of allowing tones and colors to shade gradually into one another, producing softened outlines or hazy forms.” This gradual shift in form and color is further realized in the work here through using only midtones. The result is that of the work shifting, eliding, dematerializing, and transforming before the eye and never finding complete resolution.
