I’m deeply inspired by the boots-on-the-ground views of the American landscape of photographers like William Eggleston, Garry Winogrand, and Robert Frank. I sometimes think of my painting practice in part as an homage to these artists, except my photos are taken through the window of my Subaru, and I really take random cropping to an extreme. I use the photographs to record and remember specific details that I can then pull from when painting. The relationship to photography is tenuous in my final works, but it’s sometimes visible in certain cropping or flattening, a flash of graphic advertising, or specificity of detail embedded in the paintings’ morphing logic. Usually my photographs look like what they are – snapshots taken randomly out of the passenger (and sometimes the driver side) window, but occasionally I get lucky. -Karla Wozniak, 2012
I love the patchwork feel of the road. Really nice!
sort of reminds me of Gauguin un the city
Fantastic painting by a fantastic painter.
The picture on the bottom is not of Hermitage, TN. The picture is actually of Cookville, TN.
