Luminous Flux (2016-2017)

The paintings in Luminous Flux explore the apparent creation of light. Do the objects reflect light? Are they identified by it? Or can they be its source?

The term luminous flux refers to the measure of the perceived power of light. We know that the human eye is not equally sensitive to all wavelengths of visible light. Science attempts to account for this by weighing the measured power at each wavelength with a factor that represents how sensitive the eye is at that wavelength.

How sensitive are the eyes we look with?

Several of the paintings in this series were initially shown in Botanical, a two-person exhibition with Catherine Macaulay, at Darrell Bell Gallery in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, March 4 to April 1, 2017.

These pieces are available from the gallery linked directly in the image title.
