In an era when people hold 4K television in high esteem, and a premium is paid for a building with panoramic views, the way that we use our eyes is given greater precedence than ever before.
You wouldn't put obscured glass in a window overlooking a magnificent panorama. So why does so much art deliberately limit what we can see? Brett Lohn asks this same question with his own paintings.
Brett feels strongly that nature has reached a level of achievement that is without parallel. Nothing is accidental, nothing random. Any attempt to 'interpret' what we see through a series of vague brush strokes is a dilution of it's perfection. To 'capture the essence' is not enough.
Brett describes his work as painting 'what the eye feels'. His work breathes and communicates with your spirit as much as it does with your eyes.
Brett looking far better than he normally does!
Brett's paintings are natural, relaxed and built up in many layers of both oils and narrative.
Imagine a large window looking out onto a beautiful vista. Imagine the goosebumps felt from seeing that drama and beauty unfold in front of you. This is what Brett seeks to recreate on canvas.
His art demands that you take a moment to stop and breathe. Every painting has a story woven through it; sometimes a tale is told through a series of works.
Brett believes that the impact of beauty on the beholder is invariably positive. It brings hope, joy and light. It improves your experience of life. It is good for you, for your spirit and for your health.
Certain Art can help you to escape from darkness
Having graduated with an honours degree in Art History from the University of Sussex, Brett is familiar with contemporary interpretation and trends in modern art.
Brett carefully constructs his paintings to offer more than just the visual. Whilst they have a great deal to offer aesthetically they are also open to deeper interpretation.
More importantly, they are available for enjoyment by everybody, whatever your artistic belief or persuasion.
So please enjoy this website, enjoy my work and, if you can, pop along to one of my exhibitions. I'd love to see you there!
