Utopia, 2020, Acrylic on plastic.

 

This work, for the artist's gymnasium portfolio, showcases her idea of a utopia in the clouds. The work uses the transparency of the plastic sheets to create depth in the painting and an atmospheric effect. In this way it approaches the ephemeral and makes obvious how it is made of light just as much as paint. The work can be viewed from all angles and sways in the breeze caused by viewers walking around it. This utopia is delicate and can seem to disappear when looked at the wrong way, in this way the work speaks to the ideal it represents showing us a beautiful and fragile impossibility.
