Director, La Luz de Jesus Gallery

"Light is difficult to express in painting. There are a handful of modern painters that can capture it perfectly, and lesser still who have their own style. Mark Bodnar is a very successful animator and as a result doesn't have much time to dedicate to gallery work, which is a loss for anyone who hasn't seen his work in person. When we last exhibited his paintings in November 2009, I had to show patrons that there was not a light box behind them–I literally had to remove the pieces from the wall and show them the backs to convince them that this was just acrylic paint on canvas. If the Looney Tunes were real people, they would pay Mark Bodnar millions to paint their portraits, which I suppose makes him the Rembrandt of the rugrat set."
