Dan Attoe explores the sublime by painting majestic fictional landscapes – expansive views that ease into the foreground to reveal tiny figures punctuated by truisms rendered in silver text. Attoe said of his work, “The landscape can be enjoyed for its beauty, and the disparity between it and the figures, but it also exists in service to these contemporary people in funny or ordinary clothing saying everyday things about e-mails or engaging in interpersonal clumsiness.” In Warm Afternoon Waiting, the viewer is treated to an open view of coastal expanse that dwarfs the five tiny figures punctuating the shore paddling on surfboards while cryptically musing, "We're not what we say we are... things shift in the corners of my eye."
Framing option is black painted wood, 7/8” wide flat face and 7/8” deep, with UV acrylic glass.
