These pictures from Gregory Thielker's collection 'Under the Unminding Sky' present a world from behind a sheet of glass and water. The pictures are taken from behind the windshield of a car, reflecting upon the artist's fascination with the landscape we encounter in our travels. In response to this work, Gregory Thielker said, "from the roadway perspective, we not only travel from one place to another, we see landscape in a varied and complex manner."

The collection reflects this unique interaction we have with the shifting environment by taking a fairly recognizable image and distorting it, blending colors and textures together in an intricate way. Working with surface and depth, these pictures by Gregory Thielker play with our notions of surface, fluidity and transparency, resulting in an intricate collection of illusions.
