The System of an Ancient Struggle: A Sensory Experience

The System of an Ancient Struggle: A Sensory Experience

AndrewJetter bit about the artist in his own words:
I’ve always had a scientific-oriented mind. Painting, ⟨and creating, more generally⟩ provides both an outlet for me to express my scientific side and a method of experimentation.

I construct vast landscapes to delve into that feature grand themes including  ⟨fundamental dualities | knowledge horizons natural and artificial juxtapositions ⟨as well their superpositions⟩ and the illusion of dimensional scale.⟩ A compulsion to explore leads me to new places(i) to observe | condense information | make intuitive | and conceptualize new horizons⟩.

Being from Albuquerque, I naturally draw inspiration from our mind-blowing skies that contrast so vividly with the raw, Earth tones of our environment – all of which is part of ⟨the decaying infrastructure of thin stucco⟩, ⟨the ever-present dust⟩ and ⟨our diverse culture that shapes it⟩. From this source material I create worlds flirting with the edge of reality. Believable places, but with an unsettling undertone of impossibility that invites the viewer to analyze    .  .  .   | indefinitely |
