Jeff Joyce 'Wanderers' Opening at Light Art + Design

  • Light Art + Design 601 West Rosemary Street Chapel Hill, NC, 27516 United States (map)

An exhibition of paintings that explore notions of exile, nature worship, wandering Chinese hermit poets, Caspar David Friedrich’s Ruckenfigur and sky watching. Inspired by the poet Shelley’s wanderings around Switzerland and Italy from 1816 until his death in 1822, and the Pink Floyd song “Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun,” the work embodies an ideal of the landscape as a private world depicted in large paintings on canvas and wood panel of starscapes and mountain ranges obscured by clouds of mist, and charts that explore interior celestial navigation.
