RADIANCE DUKE WINDSOR
Art Market|Issue #55 January 2021
GOLD is the color of extravagance, wealth, riches, and excess and shares several of the color yellow attributes.
The color gold is a warm color that can be either bright and cheerful or somber and traditional.

Gold is attributed to the spiritual reverence held by ancient gods in worship. The Golden Rule in the Old Testament refers to the high standard of treating everyone equally. Gold is a symbol of divinity and is mentioned throughout the Bible.

The Golden Skies series came about after several years of experimenting with ways to express this light in my urban/rural cityscapes in a fresh and meaningful way.

I was inspired when I viewed a collection of Russian Icons on wood panels. The reverence and visceral experience I felt from the luminance of these traditional Icon works further inspired me.

In the art world, gold leaf techniques are often considered as merely decorative art. I’d like to change that.

Today, my works are detailed ignored areas in contemporary cityscapes as well as still life. The illumination in these works, seen from various angles, will give the viewer a unique and new perspective on the piece.

The shift in light will also change the works' dynamics, depending on the ambient light source and the angle in which the artwork is viewed. When applying gold leaf, I found that the medium added a spiritual quality to the work, as well as a radiance, which I hope the viewer will also experience.
