The second painting in Lee Tiller’s new Luminosity series, is part of an intimate landscape paintings. A longheld fascination with light and its affects on colour has given Lee the latitude to explore a more intimate and emotional response to painting. Bordering on expressionism, ‘Luminosity II’ is an exuberantly and dynamically painted portrayal of light spilling through a natural portal found within the hedgerow. It’s a motif that we are all familiar with, yet rarely pause to truly savour it as a spectacle. Our fast disappearing hedgerow is an essential home to a diverse range of biodiversity and colour. Lee sees this illuminated space as nature’s own stained glass window.

Lee was born in Berkshire in the UK and now lives and paints amidst the mountains of County Kerry in Ireland. His studio, “the yellow house” which is adjacent to his home is an old converted bothy (small traditional barn) that overlooks a glacial valley known locally as ‘The Pocket’.
“I draw immense inspiration from the West Coast of Ireland. Its untamed beauty provides endless contrasts to our otherwise orderly state of human existence. The natural majesty of the mountains with their dramatic terrain often leave an unsettled air of intimidation, but can conversely serenade you with a calming gentleness too. It is a magical place indeed.”
“I have long been inspired by the 19th Century impressionist painters who explored colour in a way that was hitherto unseen. The immediacy of impressionism provides the viewer with their own intimate experience of place and time, and is very much a case of show, but don’t tell. I love that people can interpret my paintings in a personal capacity. “
On more than one occasion Lee’s work has been likened to Monet and Van Gogh, and it’s easy to see where his major influences lie.
Lee’s paintings are collected worldwide and can be found in private collections throughout both hemispheres. Painting in oils, his artistic works cover a diverse range of natural history subjects from marine wildlife through to wild chromatic impressionist landscapes.
