Bill Millett is a Glasgow based photographer, whose aim is to take the camera out of its normal context and utilise it as a canvas. To look at photography as a way of painting an image as opposed to replicating it. This methodology is illustrated in the series of light paintings. The images are first sketched then constructed, without the use of computer manipulation. They are an assemblage of light and colour an ephemeral sculpture captured on the camera. The presenting image allows the viewer to explore their own creativity constructing the image out of the presenting light and colour that in habits the space like some distant nebula. My work is influenced by the paintings of Rothko, and in a similar vain invite the viewer into the work as opposed to pushing the viewer away, they are meditative works that offer no answer only questions.
