Tom Brenner

In exploring this fascinating subject, Tom Brenner will survey scores of images from a wide range of times, places and artistic perspectives. Among the questions that will be considered:  How best can an artist perceive and understand the workings of light in the physical world?  By what means can he or she most effectively translate these observations into an artistic image?  How does the artists’ treatment of light affect the viewer’s response?  Woven throughout this visual journey, the words of artists, scientists, poets and philosophers, will further illuminate the aesthetic, emotional, and spiritual significance of light in our lives and our creativity.
