LIGHT PAINTING

Is an artform becoming more and more popular. Canada boasts one of the masters of this form, Patrick Rochon. http://www.patrickrochon.com 

During a recent visit to my summer home in Nova Scotia, I too, began to paint with light. 

 

I quickly discovered that this medium lent itself wonderfully to what was once called "action painting" pioneered by such people as Jackson Pollock, Bill de Kooning and many others. The term "action painting" was coined by a man I remember well, Harold Rosenberg, one of the leading critics and art writers of that era.

 

It is very moving to me that I am carrying on a tradition founded by these great pioneers who changed the meaning of art, and whom I remember from my own early years.
