The oil painting “The 28th of May” (Now part of the Gordon collection in Atlanta, GA) was a turning point for master painter j. Neil Bittner. In that painting, he merged oil painting, photography, and his style of silkscreen into one painting … all done with oils. His next important painting “51L: Lost” was particularly personal since Mr. Bittner was an astronaut candidate for that flight. Here he again combines the different mediums, all done in oil paint to create a masterpiece that fools the eye and stirs the emotions. 51L was requested by the White House for their permanent collection. Newspaper clippings regarding space programs were saved by the artist since Sputnik in 1958 when a rocket club he was part of sent rockets up higher than the United States government at the time.
Among his accomplishments is a triptych of oil paintings consisting of 51:Lost depicting the space shuttle Challenger explosion. This painting received national attention culminating in an invitation one-man exhibition in the US Senate Russell Rotunda in Washington, DC. The second piece, September 11th portrays the destruction of the World Trade Center. His third, called Flight of Souls pays tribute to the Sandy Hook, CT massacre, a school his children previously attended. Read Less
