Ordinary Night is one half of a surreal landscape, as I like to call it. There is nothing obviously twisted in either painting, nothing that stands out beyond the colors being enhanced and the drama of the lighting being played up. However, each of these paintings works together to create a surreal day. The landscape continues from one canvas onto the other to create one panoramic image. No matter if Night was placed on the left or if Day was placed on the left, the scene would continue near seamlessly from one canvas to the other. The intent is to represent the repeating cycle of day and night, a full day of the surreal. The landscape represented is one from my imagination but which i have often thought was real and simply a place I haven’t yet traveled.
This painting is acrylic on canvas and measures 40″ by 30″.
