Black is a ''color '' or more like a shadow , a black whole. But this is not the black whole of the universe that we don't know much about .
When I work on a white surface black is a line. When I start the work on black is a big splash and remains dominant even after I finish my pieces . The way I like to work with the black background is to balance it with some light ( just as I wrote this down reminded me of Genesis 1 )
What is better to use ? Loads of white !
I could make it very colorful but my personal taste is white balance satisfy my vision.
Is nothing complicated I keep things simple...
So don't be afraid to choose a black piece it can look strong in a space but can be also a well balanced contrast that a room needs.
