Timothy Haslet’s paintings over the last year have often featured a fluorescent acrylic base layer with layers of semi-translucent oil paint on top. This creates a beautiful balance of “loud” and “soft” areas of color on the canvas, adding to the already dynamic qualities that are typical of his work. When you see his paintings in person, be on the lookout for the neon canvas edges glowing onto the insides of the white floating frames. Viewers often ask if the paintings are somehow backlit; when the reality is simply our eyes are perceiving and translating purposeful color choices.
