In honor of Earth Day we are excited to share with you some work from our Artist in Residence, @henryquinson! Fascinated by images and how the world is represented through the eyes of others, he was drawn to photography and later explored the medium of painting. This work titled “The Giant Steps” (2017) combines both of these practices to communicate the overwhelming power and majesty of the open ocean. Through the use of the monochromatic color scheme and the layering of acrylics over the image, the cliffs and water are abstracted — blending and fusing in a way that is visually stimulating. The marriage of these two natural forms, one strong, solid and stable, the other wild, rushing and unpredictable, provides us with a stunning image and subtle commentary on the beautiful Earth that we inhabit.
