Black is mysterious and hidden. It gives me the feeling of the unknown. I like its sophistication and the contrasts that it permits. I use it a lot with White as it creates intensity and energy in the painting.

White is safe, clean and pure. It emanates youth, perfection and innocence. White is simplicity and freshness.

I believe that the opposite symbology and meaning of Black and White strikes a hidden message and restlessness in the viewer. This combination is very attractive to me and I tend to use heavy media like carbon, soundproofing paint and plaster of Paris to create texture when I paint with these colours.
