The heavens are ever-shifting, shifting between day and night, as well as in their hues and cloud formations. They offer an endlessly enthralling sight to behold, with both a consistent beauty and one that is constantly evolving. There is something so peaceful and calming about looking up at the sky, whether it be during the day or at night. It's a reminder of the vastness of the world and the universe, and of how small we are in comparison. It's no wonder we often look to the heavens for guidance and inspiration.
I have forever been moved by the sky's capability for creativity. In Winter 2021, when residing in St Petersburg, Russia, my apartment window framed such mesmerising colors of the northern firmament that inspired me to paint them all down. Capturing the cityscape, I produced eleven time-stamped acrylics on paper; upon completion I then affixed colored frames onto each drawing, giving it a glitch effect—this was intended to symbolise reflections on passing moments within space, time and simulated reality combined.
