John is getting ready for a significant solo exhibition on the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Artwork titled, “Transcendence: Fact in Nature.” In the midst of writing in regards to the work for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader by means of the 4 seasons and the inspiration and challenges they convey to the panorama painter.
This week, we wished to share a few of his ideas and work about Summer season with you.
“Once we lived and painted at the next latitude on the Hudson River, I used to be instantly conscious of the decrease angle of the solar there—an angle which elevated all these attention-grabbing elements of sunshine on the panorama which can be lacking in summer season right here. The summer season solar was by no means immediately overhead. The “golden hours” of morning and night gentle lasted longer and helped me perceive absolutely the work of The Hudson River Faculty. Discovering topics to color any time of day there was not troublesome. The sunshine the place we dwell now within the Midwest is considerably totally different. The solar in summer season is extra immediately overhead all through the center of every day. The sunshine might be very vibrant and harsh, which might eradicate necessary mid-range tonal subtleties and make it exhausting to see. Shadows might be lowered in additional open areas to just about nothing as are perspective and distance cues, making the painter’s job extra of a problem. Portray the summer season day right here requires extra work to discover a appropriate topic and sometimes a distinct approach of decoding the panorama in pictorial phrases. This has lead me to new options and new varieties of images.”
