In 'September Purple Haze' Lee Tiller has used a rich autumnal palette of burnt oranges, greens and yellows which are accentuated by purples and lilacs in the distant haze. He paints in the same tradition as the original impressionist artists, painting with an immediacy that recreates the sensation of a moment in time and evocation of place. Hidden with the brushstrokes are myriad colours that often surprise and confound, yet viewed as a whole, form a harmonious effect similar to musical expression. Having developed a reputation for painting the effects of light, Lee’s work has often been mentioned alongside the works of the original French Impressionists, employing broken colour to create beautiful chromatic harmonies. Like Monet and Pisarro, Tiller reveals as much with colour within the shadows as you would expect to find in the full radiance of reflected sunlight. This particular painting was inspired by childhood memories of playing by the Thames and the Kennet near his childhood home of Reading. 'September Purple Haze' will make a wonderful, calming centre piece for any room or office space.
