American multi-disciplinary artist Gregory Thielker, who lives between Switzerland and the United States, grows his practice from the gap between perception and reality. His work spans sound, installation, and drawing, but he’s best known for his photorealist paintings—beguiling works that accurately document the world around us, while drawing attention to the complex act of seeing. We were drawn to his extraordinary series “Under The Unminding Sky,” where Gregory recreated the strange, blurry road scenes as seen through rain-soaked car windows. He’s exhibited in New York, London, Paris, Buenos Aires, and beyond, and has been featured by The Guardian, The Independent, La Repubblica, and New American Painting.
“It might sound strange, but I am just as interested in the bend of a road, or the shape of an overpass as I am in the color of the light.”
