I'M IN THE BLACK AGAIN

It has been a while since I limited my palette to the bold and beloved black. The absence of color allows me to focus on the relationship between the forms of solid blacks, shades of gray and negative space. These same principles apply to color pieces as well, but with the black and white limitation, the compositions are strongly dependent on tonal contrast. Which tends to create a more graphical execution. This new mini-series I am currently working on, takes the whole black and white palette a step further by being black and white on a black surface. It delivers a completely different feel. I am digging the direction these are heading right now. These pieces should be finished in a few weeks, but for now, checkout these sneak peeks below.
