OUR CURRENT RESIDENT ARTIST IS Daniel vanBenthuysen. SEE HIM AT THE WILTON LIBRARY MONDAY, AUGUST 25, AT 6:00.
I plan to continue the series of rooftop paintings I have been doing for the last several years, a series in which I explore the way natural late-afternoon or early-evening light falls on man-made structures or parts of them. Although my paintings are perceived as being representational, even realistic, the series explores the borderline between abstraction and realism. I am as interested in the colors and the geometry of these scenes as I am in the specific content of the scenes themselves. The exploration of architecture and landscape in and around the Weir Farm would be a welcome venue in which to work.
I also look forward to sharing with visitors my experiences an an artist working at Weir Farm. I am also a university professor who is seldom shy about speaking to groups.
