History of Bill Ham Lights

Bill Ham "an Abstract Expressionist painter and true 'indie,' Ham began developing a method for what he called 'spontaneous painting of projected imagery' after witnessing Elias Romero's liquid-light projections for rock shows. Romero's work inspired Ham to take his creative practice from labor-intensive oil on canvas to more immediate experiences made using over projectors—an idea first introduced by Hungarian artist and former Bauhaus professor László Moholy-Nagy."—Louise Sandhaus, Earthquakes, Mudslides, Fires & Riots: California and Graphic Design 1936-1986, p 170
