Lights Over Chao Phraya River

Description : Lights over Chao Phraya River is another of my collection which focuses on the skyline of famous cities which l have been to and loved. Having lived in Bangkok for over 20 years this painting captures iconic landmarks of Thailand such as the Chao Phraya River, and the Buddhist temple of Wat Arun, opposite the Grand Palace. The temple has existed since at least the 17th century. It personifies the radiations of the rising sun. As such this painting explores the radiation of energy and light which mergers with the larger dynamic cosmos, rather than a static sky we see, and how we are one and not seperate from the larger universe.

The impressionist style displays free brushstrokes which reflect more clearly emotions and feelings at that moment. More recent work fringes on post Impressionism and fauvism which dates during period of 1890 to 1910 with a focus on strong colours. Post impressionists uses vivid colours, thick application of paint, distinctive brush strokes, and real life subject matter. Fauvism uses techniques where complementary colours are used which results in a sharper contrast of colour created by primary and secondary opposing colours. This is opposed to other impressionist work where more analogous colour schemes and tertiary colours are used for lightness and depth.
