Firmament

Matthew Plescher's avatar Matthew Plescher

This is the second in a new painting series. In landscape painting, it is somewhat unavoidable that the sky is above and disconnected. Painting the sky reflected in water is a way around this. I like the metaphor of the heavens somehow being connected to the earth. A second theme I will be exploring in this series is ambiguous structures: exploring visual ideas of past, present and future using structures that could be ruins or newly built.
