I have been writing a lot about making light pour itself on the viewer. Yesterday's work took a big step in that direction. I call it "Scintillation" (see the dictionary definition, below). There are ways of achieving scintillation in drawing and in painting. I am working on making it so. Over a hundred years ago Vincent Van Gogh and Georges Seurat worked in this direction (see reproduction, below). Here I am. History does repeat itself, just not in identical ways. I am an abstract artist, Van Gogh and Seurat were not.
scintillation | ˌsin(t)lˈāSHən | noun a flash or sparkle of light. • the process or state of emitting flashes of light. • Physics a small flash of visible or ultraviolet light emitted by fluorescence in a phosphor when struck by a charged particle or high-energy photon. • Astronomy the twinkling of the stars, caused by the earth's atmosphere diffracting starlight unevenly.
