  John is getting ready for a significant solo exhibition on the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Artwork titled, “Transcendence: Fact in Nature.” In the middle of writing in regards to the work for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader by way of the 4 seasons and the inspiration and challenges they bring about to the panorama painter.

   This week, we needed to share a few of his ideas and work about Summer time with you.

   “Once we lived and painted at a better 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 fascinating features of sunshine on the panorama which are lacking in summer time right here. The summer time solar was by no means immediately overhead. The “golden hours” of morning and night mild lasted longer and helped me perceive totally the work of The Hudson River Faculty. Discovering topics to color any time of day there was not tough. The sunshine the place we dwell now within the Midwest is considerably completely different. The solar in summer time is extra immediately overhead all through the center of every day. The sunshine could be very vivid and harsh, which may remove necessary mid-range tonal subtleties and make it onerous to see. Shadows could be decreased in additional open areas to almost nothing as are perspective and distance cues, making the painter’s job extra of a problem. Portray the summer time day right here requires extra work to discover a appropriate topic and sometimes a distinct manner of deciphering the panorama in pictorial phrases. This has lead me to new options and new sorts of images.”
