About the Exhibition ...
A series of paintings exploring the natural world through both observation and imagination by taking elements of reality that are exaggerated through the use of color and light. These paintings were created with the intention of turning various landscapes into heightened versions of themselves. Most of the paintings featured in this show are based on locations in Alaska and Pennsylvania.
