Wanderlust I

2018. Polyester, Acrylic Paint, Acrylic Panel, Enamel Paint, 9” x 16” x 1 3/8”.

Wanderlust complements Pathfinder. This series is more concerned with how the natural environment, such as water and terrain, poses an inherent problem with mobility. It is a reflection on my desire to travel beyond what I have conventionally understood to be my limitations, and answers how I would make such an attempt. The sculptural elements are based on topographical maps that I generated from photographs of various textures. I painted the sculptures showing little human modification. Next, I painted the roads and buildings based on the sculpture, and then painted the best route between two arbitrary points. This route is based on my own decision making process when faced with a mobility conflict. A viewer must look at several pieces before developing any understanding of my decision making process and my point of view.

Wanderlust I was shown at the 2019 Pence Gallery show Slice, where it won first prize.
