The technique I developed is called Dialuminism (”light passing through”) and embeds metal leaf and oil paint within layers of solar resistant resins. Light reflects off the metal background layer, passes through the layers of paint and then is refracted by the layers of clear resin (which act as a sort of clear lense, fused to the surface of the painting). The result is a painting that is basically back-lit, which creates very intense color. Light plays off some areas and casts shadows beneath others, creating a dimensional painting that changes in appearance depending upon where the viewer is standing in relation to the light source.
