Transparent Paintings 

 

Bryan has been practicing painting since the early 1980s. He created the transparent painting technique in 1986 when he was still in university. Bryan applied oil thinner directly on the canvas to make a coating that had a translucent effect. Now, he uses not just oil thinner on oil paints and water on acrylic paints; he uses air on all kinds of mediums. A 3-dimensional effect is typically produced with the transparent painting technique.

In his view, fine art has two levels of expression, one is real, and the other is philosophic. While the former is a more expressive style, the latter has a larger imagination space. Although photography can best express the reality of things, abstract painting can express concepts and ideas the best. This is why he chose the latter.

 

You can view some of Bryan's paintings on the official Transparent Paintings website.
