"I have channeled my energies into the study of the Bible, with the result that the inspiration for my art continues to derive from the Old Testament and the stories within. The style of my work, therefore, can be described as neither figurative nor abstract. Rather, it is based on the symbols of Aramaic lettering with its bold rings, circles, and, mostly, geometric patterns, including the geometric patterns seen in my early works. When I reach a conclusion as to which character or story from the Old Testament that I wish to portray, I begin to interpret my idea into its visual realization with the Aramaic as my guide. In the process of visualizing the story, or the character, in relation to the Aramaic symbols, the work evolves on canvas into a style that, I have been told, is uniquely my own; an evolution from the cubist-constructivist period of Braque and the Uruguayan, Torres-Garcia through the digital transcriptions of the modern era. I am flattered by such descriptions but, in truth, all I am doing is translating through my mindís eye what I interpret in the Old Testament." Terry Lightman died in 2003 at the age of 92 in Montreal.
