"Remote Return" giclee print

$40.00 - $100.00 / Sold Out

"Remote Return" giclee print is a high quality digital reproduction of an original painting created in 2020 for the Halophyte Collective group exhibition “Myth in Memory.” The media of the original work is watercolor, gouache and colored pencil.

Torn off of a roll of Arches cold press watercolor paper and rolled into my bike pannier, “Remote Return” began as a loose landscape painting I worked on during my bike rides up City Creek Canyon in Salt Lake City. I’d lay the painting on the ground and stabilize it with loose rocks. I wasn’t liking the piece and stopped working on the landscape. I began to use it as a test sheet for other paintings. Bordering the landscape are aspects of these paintings, as though one is peering at a memory through a window made of more recent memories. I returned to and “finished” the painting in July 2020, during a time I could not actually be in the landscape I was depicting. I see the act of finishing the piece similar to looking through a photo album: revisiting and re-examining past personas. Through this process, I was able to find beauty in the mundane.

The original painting received the Jurors's Award in the Statewide Annual Exhibition UT '20.
