Painting with Light
Light is generally used for practical purposes. There are some artists who have used light as a medium to create remarkable artwork, which is vivid and luminous in nature. It not only enhances the surrounding but transforms the photograph into something really eye-catching and appealing.
This post will highlight works of various artists and photographers who have painted with light!
Eric Staller, a New York-based artist, experimented with light way back in the 1970s. He used a tripod, long-time exposures and moved around urban sources with a variety of light sources like sparklers, Christmas lights wrapped around a hula hoop, etc., to create beautiful light paintings.
Another artist who creates mind-blowing images using only light. Alan Jaras, a British artist, captures refraction patterns formed when a beam of light passes through a shaped and textured plastic form, directly on to 35mm film, without using the camera lens and putting transparent object in its place.
He photos feature coloured material as well added directly into the plastic. These images aren’t photoshopped or computerized, they look brilliant. They look like a microscopic view of some beautiful object, and the one below looks like a celestial occasion, birth of a red star!Simply let your imagination run wild, and tell us what you interpret them to be.
