NZ landscape artist paints light

Tim Wilson was travelling between Wanaka and Lake Hawea when it struck him - he should be a landscape artist.
He says it was a profound moment caused by the way the light touched the landscape, and the emotion that evoked.
Wilson was a Palmerston North teenager at the time, on a school trip to the South Island.
It has taken him several decades to develop his own unique style - paintings with a fluorescent, translucent quality.
While they have been compared to 3D pictures, you won't need special glasses to view them, but you will need a healthy bank balance to take one home.

I too grew up in Palmerston North. The thing I'd love to ask Tim is how, growing up in the windy, grey flatness of Palmy denuded of native forest did he get this inspiration for seeing light? Was it sensory deprivation and then huge appreciation and going to different landscapes and ecology?
