I believe that landscape paintings convey memories and feelings to people. I painted locations that people have visited, imagined, or wanted to visit at least once. It is based on pictures, but I used various colors to present a dreamlike and ethereal feeling that cannot be captured in normal photographs, and maximized the colors to capture the beauty of nature I personally felt from the photographs in my painting.
The artists I was influenced by are Fairfiled Porter, Phillip Gustin, Allison Schulnik and David Hockney. I painted using the distinct characteristics that appear in their paintings. I tried to paint these works based on my experience and memories more than last semester. I want the audience to feel nostalgic seeing my paintings.
