In ‘Sunburst Finish’ Lee Tiller has captured a sunset as a balmy September day comes to a close. Using a broad yet sympathetic palette of colour, it evokes a feeling of peace and tranquility. Sunburst Finish is an invitation to wander lakeside and wonder at the magnificent stained glass effect of a twilight sunset. The quality of light that Lee captures is only achievable using the broken colour and the flamboyant brush strokes associated with impressionism. As he says “Impressionism was, and remains the true pinnacle of artistic expression, it is the essence of nature revealed. Everything since is but a pale shadow.” Tiller paints in the same tradition as the original French impressionists, and strives to recreate the sensation of an evanescent moment in time. Hidden with his brushstrokes are colours that often surprise and confound, yet when viewed as a whole, form a harmonious effect similar to the expression of a musical chord. Individual notes that work as harmony when blended together. Having developed a reputation for painting nature and the effects of light, Lee’s work is often mentioned alongside the great works of Monet and Pissarro.
