About the painting
Isabel Bigelow’s work in ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’. Finding fertile ground in the space between abstraction and representation, Bigelow closes in on familiar elements. Trees, fences, islands and forests disappear or come sharply into view as they vie for attention with the surrounding atmosphere. The material evolution of the works is essential to their realization. The surface of the panel is slowly built up to provide a textural support for thin veils of color applied in layers. Each layer is restrained yet sumptuous, softly mingling with the layer underneath lending a diaphanous effect to the atmosphere of the painting.
