Starry Starry Night

Clara ApaRicio Yoldi

An abstract painting in movement based on Vincent Van Gogh’s painting Starry Night. Defined by lines and dots, it is a play of audiovisual rhythms, colours and shapes, light and darkness. Van Gogh painted his Starry Night in June 1889. Unlike the earlier Starry Night Over the Rhone, the new night scene was painted in daylight, from memory. He wrote in a letter to Émile Bernard: "The imagination is certainly a faculty which we must develop and it alone can bring us to creation of a more exalting and consoling nature ... A star-spangled sky, for instance, that's a thing I would like to try to do ... But how can I manage unless I make up my mind to work ... from imagination?"
