Wanderlust by Kristin Selesnick

May 2nd - June 3rd

Moab in July, acrylic on canvas, 24" x 26", 2022

 

Artist Statement

Wanderlust is a selection of paintings created over the past 10 years, including a new body of work inspired by a road trip out to some National Parks in Utah and Colorado last summer. My paintings explore personal interaction within the constructed landscape. From passive observation through a car window, to active engagement on an endurance run, I paint, from photographs, to capture the light, color, and essence of places I have visited or call home. My paintings serve as both a travelog of my personal experiences and as a broader commentary on the way we as humans interact with the natural world.
