A Rainy Day Road Trip.

2700When he’s driving, Gregory Thielker takes in the views that change from moment to moment: the road, the sky, other cars. “Inside the car it’s easy to forget the outside temperature, humidity, the noise of the road,” he says.
“But something happens when rain interrupts the view: the lens through which we are seeing is revealed.
Water both obscures and highlights the landscape.
” The New York-based painter captured these moments in a series of paintings, Under the Unminding Sky, named after a line in Dylan Thomas’s poem This Side of the Truth.
The images are composites of different photos.
“Painting water can take on so many arrangements of colour and light, so I see the raindrops as individual paintings.”
