"I had a show last spring at Preacher Gallery in Austin, TX titled “Lone Star,” and I was thinking a lot about the Texas landscape, specifically the Big Bend area, and also had a recurring motif of a bright guiding star which appeared in a lot of the work. You know what they say, the stars at night, are big and bright… you get it. That said, I didn't want these two paintings to feel too specifically like any one geographical location. I wanted them to more broadly feel like you were following a star in the sky into an unknown landscape.
"Weirdly enough I was thinking about the color palette from the movie Thor: Ragnarok. It's one of my favorite movies from the past couple of years and it's got a wonderful, bright, 70's psychedelic space vibe going on in some of the set designs and movie posters. I wanted to grab that exuberant rainbow and see how it fit into this starry world I was working on." ––Scott Listfield
