In his newest solo show, Horizons, Don Bishop explores a series of landscape paintings focusing on light and atmosphere. The paintings in this newest body of work create a journey through which the viewer can visually travel towards far off horizons and distant light to a place of calm. Some of the pieces are more quiet with traditional earth tone colors, while others are more vibrant in flavor while maintaining a soft atmospheric quality to them.
These new landscapes, which were created in oils, are approached in the classic tonalist style, but with a contemporary eye towards composition and color.
The result is a more modern minimalist look to the paintings.
