Aerial IV oil on canvas 41 x 31″ $3800
Aerial IV is part of an ongoing series of “attempted” landscapes seen from high above. If I could fly, I’d imagine that the periphery might look the same as when driving fast where in my peripheral vision the landscape stretches out, sometimes into straight lines and blurs. I am always aware of the periphery of a painting and purposely design edges because that is what restricts the image from going any further.
I use the word “attempt” because all art is an attempt at something. It’s both a verb and a noun, which the Oxford on-line dictionary defines as “an act of trying to do something, especially something difficult, often with no success,” as in attempting to make art or fly.
