Chaiyim - Harmonics of energy (triptych)
Chaiyim means "life" in Hebrew. Life is energy and a flow of energy is the essence of any creative process.
The essence of energy is transformed into anything we do. It appears, however, when applying energy we undergo periods of varying strength or force; each giving us a different experience.
As an artist, I am constantly confronted with the outcomes of what I create and often I am perplexed in what I see, not so much in the image itself but in the dynamics, which, I believe, determine the various facets in how a piece of art might be perceived or how it may communicate mood.
This triptych presents an experiment through which I sought to increase awareness of my own energy transformation during a painting process and how this may influence not only the resulting images but also their structure and my stylistic parameters while trying to remain within the format of a triptych.
For this I painted 3 separate canvases simultaneously, never spending any lengthy amount of time on any one canvas and with the aim to complete them as one piece within a time frame of 48 hours.
The outcome: it appears that I can not fully exert my energy constant across a set of canvases. Each panel holds a different dynamic, which may be assumed in the rhythms of the linework, the flow of the paint and the intensity of colours; even though the colour-palette is identical, their tonal values and distributions vary. I also noticed that there is diversity in structure, composition and image strength across the 3 panels.
Although I am satisfied with the experience I had, other, more personal, aspects may have certainly impacted the experiment and may have distracted from a more objective conclusion.
