Study for Margin A

PAUL HUNTER
Study for Margin A, 19" x 24"

Paul states "The imaginary landscape is central to my work. I paint landscapes onto canvases covered with 23 karat gold leaf, bronze, copper, aluminum and white gold leaf.

At the horizon line, sky and water, and light and shadow meet.  By moving in front of the painting and shifting the viewing angle, the viewer can alter the light and the shadow that fall onto the landscape and thereby witness the passage of time through light. Similarly, the changing light over the course of a day dramatically alters the luminosity of the painting. 

Luminosity is the underlying theme in all of my work."
