Tom Chambers

  Renaissance artists affirmed the transformational nature of light in their classical paintings. Italian masters such as Taddeo Gaddi and Giotto di Bondone of the Renaissance period painted breathtaking frescoes in which light created dramatic effects, which serve as the inspiration for Tom Chamber's luminescent images.

Following recent travels in Italy, I was awed by the metaphysical nature of Tuscan and Ventian light. The unique light accentuated the brilliance of the Renaissance artistic and architectural masterpieces. I came away with the understanding that light exposes possibilities and opens the mind to seeing things differently.
