About the work
This work is comprised of 25 drawings of sunsets that have been affected by various mirage effects. The green flash, inferior mirage, mock mirage, Novaya Zemlya effect, etc. These force us to question what we understand as "real" and begs the question, "how can we convince ourselves that we understand what we are seeing?" In a world that often feels unfair, or tragic, we must work to shift our perspectives so we are able to live happily.
About the artist
Anders Lindseth (b.1990, Cleveland, Ohio) is an artist currently living in Los Angeles that makes paintings, drawings and sculptures. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of the ‘end of the world’, his works reference Tibetan Buddhism as well as fauvism and expressionism, while subverting the traditional labels of painting or drawing. By referencing romanticism, Buddhist death meditations, and the American West, he creates works which serve as a tool for coming to terms with the unpredictability and inevitable loss of our future.
