Light has had a continual presence in subject and concept throughout the history of painting, but how it is understood and interpreted has evolved over time. My current paintings are meditations on a new perception of light. Our light we live by today is not what others have experienced in the past. The digital age has brought a new age of illumination through glowing rectangles that demand our attention and are used with an almost religious fervor as they are essential to our day to day culture. The sole light source for the paintings comes from a screen, which with its digital flicker manipulates and redefines the space.
