It stands to reason that the painter OF light should exert massive influence on those who paint WITH light.
While this site is under construction and I'm sifting through my own archives and reviewing my professional history so as to explain myself and my work (and by necessary extension, market myself and my work) to the world, I'd prefer to direct your attention to one of my many inspirations, the painter Joseph Mallord William Turner.
Born in 1775, before the advent of photography, Turner was known as "the painter OF light" and is considered a master of British landscape painting, in both watercolour and oil. His exceptional understanding of how light shapes form and the colors we see, especially in the later abstract seascape paintings I witnessed recently in the exhibition "J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free" at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, was a harbinger to both Expressionism and the entire scientific field of photography, which didn't come along until 1839, just twelve years before Turner's death.
It stands to reason that the painter OF light should exert massive influence on those who paint WITH light. So, if you're inclined, while I fumble my way through becoming web-savvy, please enjoy this brief intro to Turner's work via The National Gallery of London:
