Art After Hours: A World of Dreams, Landscapes by Tula Telfair
Tula Telfair paints monumental landscapes and epic-scale vistas that act as windows into another world - a dream world - where everything seems familiar yet remains beyond grasp. Instead of documenting actual sites, Telfair combines invented images with a variety of formal painterly techniques to achieve highly convincing yet fictitious illusions that invite contemplation upon the relationship between humankind and the environment.
