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

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

   “After 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 features of sunshine on the panorama which can be lacking in summer time right here. The summer time solar was by no means instantly overhead. The “golden hours” of morning and night gentle 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 totally different. The solar in summer time is extra instantly overhead all through the center of every day. The sunshine may be very shiny and harsh, which may remove essential mid-range tonal subtleties and make it arduous to see. Shadows may be lowered 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 infrequently a unique approach of decoding the panorama in pictorial phrases. This has lead me to new options and new sorts of images.”
