Contemporary landscape of a highway disappearing into the light-filled gap between two sets of distant hills. Lots of drama and movement in the sweeping sky and loosely defined landscape. The elegantly curving road leads to a muted teal sky which is filled with the graceful arabesques of vapor trails. A streak of light illuminates a strip of golden field in front of the mountains, the perfect contrast to the various blues in the rest of the painting. Feel the sense of mystery and adventure.
Rancho Mirage, California
Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.
