About this title

Synopsis:

In No Matter How Good the Light Is, Edward Boccia leads us into the inner world of the artist, revealing the conflicts inherent in conceiving and shaping a vision. An accomplished painter himself, Boccia invites us to journey into the tempestuous waters of creativity and challenge our notions of what is and isn't art, providing a rare opportunity to share in the struggle of the artistic process and see a master hand at work.
