Portrait Painting- Monochrome versus polychrome to convey energy and thought. I am currently developing a series of paintings based on the aesthetic influence of my fathers photography.

Embodied within a dynamic mindscape the woman plays with psychological and elemental forces. The opposing forces of gravity and weightlessness expand, contract and distort reality. Air, water, fire and psychological expressions of energy are investigated. Sensitive, complex use of paint, sometimes harsh and cracked, sometimes soft and supple, are symbolic of the myriad complexities of the woman’s personality. The subject, however, demonstrates control over her environment and exudes a calm and assertive power that resonates throughout the image. www.heidimulder.com
