Light Seeker

Where is light?
I dig deep
To find my true self.

Hardships shapes me
Like a rough diamond.

I search for light
That will set me free.

The intriguing paintings in Busalla’s Light Seeker series explore the interaction between light, space, and the observer. Busalla removes paint from the canvas using her signature¬†grattage process to reveal the light that lies beneath and beyond the hues. This method also results in tears on the canvas, which instead of denoting destruction, represent potential entrances to an alternate reality or mental realm.

Her paintings have a variety of textures, and scratches that produce visually arresting pieces that are not only attractive to the eye but also provocative.These works prompt the viewer to consider the nature of light and space in relation to the physical space in which the art is displayed.
