Illumination

Renaissance artists affirmed the transformational nature of light in their classical paintings. Taddeo Gaddi and Giotto di Bondone of the Renaissance period painted breathtaking frescoes in which light created dramatic effects. Artists, such as these masters, inspired me to create photomontages that highlight the aesthetic power of light.

Los artistas del renacimiento consolidaron  la naturaleza transformadora de la luz en sus pinturas clásicas. Taddeo Gaddi y Giotto di Bondone del período  renacentista pintaron  impresionantes frescos en los que  la luz creaba efectos dramáticos. Artistas como estos maestros, me inspiraron para crear fotomontajes que ponen de relieve el poder estético de la luz.

Following recent travels in Italy, I was awed by the metaphysical nature of Tuscan light. The unique light accentuated the brilliance of the Renaissance artistic and architectural masterpieces. I came away with the understanding that light exposes possibilities and opens the mind to seeing things differently. Illumination, a series of photomontages, illustrates stories about personal beliefs and seeing things in a different light.

A raíz de recientes viajes a Italia, quedé sorprendido por la naturaleza metafísica de la luz Toscana. Su lu zúnica  acentúa el brillo de las obras artísticas y arquitectónicas de renacimiento. Vine aquí con la idea de que la luz expone las posibilidades y abre la mente a ver las cosas de manera diferente. Iluminación es una serie de fotomontajes que ilustran historias acerca de las creencias personales viendo las cosas bajo una luz diferente.
