… This canvas shines and changes with the light and the weather outside because of its silver pigments. Even in this pictures you can see how the silver gray of the left side can move to silver white on the right side, just because of the sun rays. You have more than one impression in front of the canvas, depending on the weather and the moment of the day. A new kind of impressionism proposed by the contemporary painter James Arax.
James was inspired by his next-door neighboor, a beautiful young woman. She was amazing, she used to dance in the courtyard of James’s Art Gallery in Paris-Le Marais. Long brown hair, slim and long silhouette, porcelain skin, dancer’s port de tête. James Arax proposes a subtle and timeless abstract painting of her with a beautiful color palette in his OpenFlow style: long drips from purple to red and very light pink.
The artistic result is vibrant and timeless.
