CHRIS CRAN (1949-), R.C.A.
Private Collection, Calgary
According to the artist, "[...] the intention behind the work from this series was the discovery of light catching on the ridges of a brushstroke that was to be lit from one position (upper left or right of the painting). A brushstroke lit from one side appears either light or dark. As the viewer moves from left to right or right to left while viewing the painting, the "image" changes from a positive to a negative. This visual strategy makes it clear to the viewer that they too are very much an active participant in the making of the painting.”
