The works and ideas of the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, 1866 – 1944,  has been a strong influence on me since my art student days. I love the simplicity and purity of his colour studies, and admire the spiritual and musical qualities of his more complex paintings. Kandinsky  regarded abstract painting as the key for transcendental expression, and a kind of visual music. He expresses his philosophical approach to painting and art in his book On the Spiritual in Art. Back to the Beginning was created by painting with crystal prisms and sunlight on white illustration board. The painting sequence was recorded on my Nikon D700 digital SLR camera, mounted with a Nikon 85mm 1.4 lens, and the post production was done with photoshop.
