Nocturnes II

David Haughton
New paintings of the Vancouver and Seattle Harbors

Nocturne Seattle Harbor, I

Inspired by James McNeill Whistler, David Haughton’s nocturnal paintings are a result from careful study of light on the nighttime landscape. Night without light seems normal, but night with light changes the way we perceive the surroundings.  Night with light, whether from the moon, stars, or now, more commonly, from our modern world, is a place of rearrangement, of masses that merge from different planes into a single form of direct and reflected light.  David Haughton continues his Nocturne series in this exhibition based on nocturnal material collected from Seattle harbors and selected Northwest landscapes.
