Introducing my latest series of original artworks and prints, a collection of works in monochrome.
Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. Tints are achieved by adding white and shades and tones are achieved by adding a darker color, grey or black.
Monochromatic painting has been an important component of avant-garde visual art throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century. Painters have created the exploration of one color, examining values changing across a surface, texture, and nuance, expressing a wide variety of emotions, intentions, and meanings in many different forms. From geometric precision to expressionism, the monochrome has proved to be a durable idiom in Contemporary art.
This series builds on my previous work Chromatic Bias, in which I used colours that the human visual system adjusts when there are changes in illumination, causing every individual to see the colours in the artworks slightly differently.
Karlijn Sas is a visual artist that creates semi abstract paintings through an intuitively driven process that emphasises the individual's perception of place. She uses colours that the human visual system adjusts when there are changes in illumination, causing every individual to see the colours in her artwork slightly differently.
The individual perception of her art gets distorted by her use of colour, texture and the reflectiveness of materials used. Karlijn’s arts practice concentrates primarily on painting in acrylic and gold leaf on board canvases made by her partner at her studio. Her work lends towards abstract landscape and figurative genres.
I acknowledge the Gadubanud as the traditional owners of the country on which I am living and working – and I recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. I pay my respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
