A Skewed Perception

Description

Looking up at a truly dark night sky creates a sense of awe and reminds us that we are connected to this greater universe; however most of us have a skewed perception of the night sky as we live in heavily light polluted urban areas. While lights serve a useful purpose, the light pollution emitted physically separates us from the natural world by blocking our view of the night sky. This painting flips the typical scene of people stargazing and instead depicts a tree gazing at the city lights, similar to how we have flipped the natural night lighting of the earth.
