SKYSCAPES

(2016 - 2020)

This body of work is inspired by the particular quality of light that the sky possesses during the transition from day to night. I find these brief, daily moments interesting because of how they precipitate both perception and introspection. This peculiar, hybrid experience has sustained my practice for the past four years. I collect reference photos from my daily commute and then transcribe these moments into paint. Any degree of realism that is attained is the accidental byproduct of an attempted divorce from self-expression.
