Light Paintings
Jon Neal was born in Burlington, Iowa. His parents were William P Wallace, and Jean Long. He attended the Academy of Art College, San Francisco, California. He received a BA, MA, and an MFA majoring in art, creative writing, and science. Jon invented a new design principle called, Directions in 2008. He wrote a thesis paper entitled, Design from Light, which was published in 2008 by UMI ProQuest. In Jon's thesis paper, he declares he is an originator of a new design principle. His mentor for the thesis paper, PhD Elden Dale Golden stated, “In his thesis, Jon laid out a new design principle for art entitled Directions which is derived from sacred geometry and the ways that light travels through space.”

The Light series artworks utilize the design principle Directions in them. From 2008 till now each painting uses it. It causes the viewer’s eyesight to follow lines, paint, and color (which are placed on the canvas) in multiple directions. This relates to light traveling in space, thus the name Light series.

Jon's art has been in group and solo shows nationally, and internationally. Most notable shows were Brave Destiny, Brooklyn, NY – WHA Center, 1st floor with surreal masters such as Dali, Giger, Fuchs, Grey, Venosa, and others, Water Exhibition, Lauderdale House, London, England, Inner Eye traveling show with exhibitions in Italy, Spain, Germany, and Austria, Sapere Gallery – Chicago, Illinois twice, HR Giger Museum show, Gruyeres, Switzerland, Art Next Gallery, NY, NY, and a Neo Surrealist show - Burlington, Iowa.
