"Light: The Visible Spectrum and Beyond"

(please scroll to next post - below - to see 
my painting included in the book)

"A visual exploration of the power and behavior of light, across the electromagnetic spectrum, and how it affects life on earth and everything in the Universe.

Light allows us to see everything around us, but humans can only see a sliver of all light, known as the electromagnetic spectrum. Here, Kim Arcand and Megan Watzke present the subject of light as never before. 

Organized along the order of the electromagnetic spectrum, each chapter focuses on a different type of light.

From radio waves, harnessed for telecommunications, to X-rays, which let us peer inside the human body and view areas around black holes in deep space, Arcand and Watzke show us all the important ways light impacts us. 

An introductory chapter describes what light is and how it behaves, while hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations demonstrate concepts and make for a stunning book that's a joy to read and browse".

 Light Sprang Forth, acrylic on canvas, 1964 by Henri van Bentum

Reproduced in the magnificent new publication, "Light: The Visible Spectrum & Beyond" (please see above post for more details). I am honoured to be in the company of Johannes Vermeer, Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet whose works are featured in the book. This particular painting, acrylic on canvas, has an interesting history.  In 1966 it was also reproduced in TIME Magazine following my solo exhibition in Paris at Galerie Raymone Cazenave. 

The painting is in the Bissell Family collection, Canada.
