Umbra is a painting in which colours appear and disappear with intensity in a range of blues and blacks, emerging from a veil of shadow like a sfumato or a large cloud in a changing sky. Presence and absence alternate to give way to a new vital energy. In the artist’s view, “Umbra is the shadiest side of the poem. There is no luminous sparkle, but to bring out the dark side through colour, you have to bring the light back to the heart of the work”.
