On Hold- Primary Colour Series-Dusk to Dawn is one of Shizico Yi's latest projects, inspired by Japanese woodblock Print and the a nod to calligraphy tradition.
Painting Sunlight as its shadowy forms-
The painting is a continuation of Shizico Yi's "Sunlit Series" where Shizico develops her visual language, with and around the colour of yellow: it's an exploration of the healing power of yellow and the celebration of the sun light which bring much needed warmth after the long cold winter in the UK. This is the reason why Gold Leaf was introduced to the paintings in this series.
Shizico paint this painting from the dusk ( facing east while the sun sets in the west, casting shadows of these leaves of dahlias), to the next morning ( painted facing west, while the sun rises in the east, casting dapple shades of the fleeting morning light through the tree leaves)

Each painting within this series aims to negotiate an unique facet, where the red hues engage in a dialogue with the layers of images inspired by her garden and the wildlife who come to visit almost daily in Summer and Autumn time. Shizico's unique take on certain painterly materials expressed fully in this painting, gold leaf on dark ink bring forms in the garden to live on canvas. She wanted to create a mystic imaginary world through the mono tone of colours. The interplay contrasting elements upon the textured surface of gold leaves and ink adds another layer of tactile fascination.
This Sunlit Series nestles within her "Golden Period," a profound exploration centred around the captivating yellow. It is a colour she believes having the healing power for those afflicted by grief. The result is a breath-taking testimony to the profound connection between the materials, the subject (the deeper meaning of her garden), and the artist herself. © Shizico Yi
