Luminous Flux (2016-2017)

The artworks in Luminous Flux explore the apparent creation of light. These still life paintings wonder if an object can appear to be a source of light instead of merely reflecting it.

The term luminous flux refers to the measure of the perceived power of light, an attempt by science to account for a varying human ability to see different wavelengths. If there is more light, can we better recognize how beautiful things are?

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.
