"the through lights"

Opening Reception: Friday, February 9, 7-9pm
Show runs through March 10, 2018

Artist statement:

"the through lights" is conceptually based on a long walk in the woods from sunup to sundown.

I compounded photos I took on the trail systems here in town with a variety of other focal imagery like tiger skulls and Frances Farmer. Each piece was then approached like you might a collage (with the clashing of unlike imagery, shapes, color & thought) and then over time letting everything blur and give way to the gesture fields they would eventually become.

I wanted to call them landscapes but the preliminary steps weren't anything so traditional or literal in scheme.  -Scott Phillips
