Saul and David, a story that serves as a reminder to every generation how envy is as corruptible to the human spirit today as in ancient times. Rembrandt used strong chiaroscuro, atmosphere and low intensity earth colors to create his dramatic emotional masterpieces.In Rembrandt Redux-Revisiting Envy, I used high intensity color to create an illuminating light and hundreds of layers of transparent glazes to suggest a rich, deep mysterious dark. The emotional nature of color creates a strong visual drama for "envy" that draws the viewer in to see a familiar picture and story in a new way.
