JOHN A. HIIGLI

FINE ARTIST

 

Throughout the history of art, geometry has been equated with perfection of natural order, and light has been perceived as the vehicle for spiritual transport. My work continues this tradition, using polyhedrons as a metaphor for nature (as 'spatial panorama'), and color as a mode of transcendence.

Pragmatism suggests the determination of truth and meaning of concepts by testing practical results, and contingency suggests a certain dependence on chance. The 'color' of any particular point on the picture plane is determined not by its local or applied color, as in any opaque oil painting, but rather by its interaction with all previous and future 'screens' of color, therefore according to its position with the 'hierarchy of screens'.
