Fake images created outside a car window

Coming to a Complete Stop

In Between

I like these images by artist Gregory Thielker. They remind me of when I was a kid, lying in the back of my parent's station wagon, on the way back from a long trip while it was raining. I used to love watching the patterns the lights made on the drops of water. As I fell asleep, they invaded my dreams with the idea of opposites - dry inside and wet outside, or the car that moves and the unmoving landscape. I would wonder about the window of the car as a division between the two just as I was moving through the hypnagogic state from being awake to being asleep

I also like that Greg's works expose you to the difference between what you see at first glance, and what is blurry and indistinct underneath.

Finally, I like that these are paintings and not photographs.
