“A lucent procession, the fifteen aquatint etchings by James Turrell engage the sight with their articulate volumes of whiteness emanating through veils of demarcated shadows that, ever so persuasively, entrance more than our gaze…”

My review on two series of aquatints, First Light and Still Light, by James Turrell, has been published in Whitehot Magazine of Contemporary Art. This body of work was recently featured in Turrell’s retrospective, curated by Lucina Ward, at the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) in Canberra, after three concurrent exhibitions at Los Angeles County Museum (LACMA), the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH), and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.







I cordially welcome you to my very spacious new website.


This site came into being because of two people: Mia Johnson and Eric Deis. Mia brilliantly managed my previous site via Kits Media for almost 15 years, transitioning it to the point when I was not only blogging my own news on Wordpress but also ready for a self-managed platform that could keep pace with the latest advancements in e-technology. After a fair amount of research, I chose Artist Run Website, a company orchestrated by Eric, because of its array of templates, as well as the logical and intuitive format. Although I have moved on to another mode, Mia is, and always will be, my dear ally. Merci beaucoup, Mia. Many thanks, Eric. To our continuous evolution…
