Wynn Bullock – In Carmel California

Wynn Bullock – In Carmel California

Wynn Bullock’s Color Light Abstractions were on view in 2010 at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel California. They were shown for the first time at Lumière in June of 2009, featured in  The Color of Light.

Bullock (1902-1975), known for his innovative, creative images was an explorer of the qualities of light… from light drawings to photograms to solarization. He was fascinated with the endless possibilities of light as a living form and force in its own right rather than simply as an illuminator representing objects as they are normally perceived. He executed this important color work in the early 60’s.

With the advent of modern color printing technologies we are now able to view these images created nearly 50 years ago. Bullock’s descendants are continuing to add to this innovative and captivating body of work. His artist page has been updated to include additional images not seen in 2009, and a video of Dr. Britt Salvesen comments on the importance and historical context of this innovative work that was truly ahead of its time.
