The United States is a big country and in order to really discover the vast and diverse land, it is convenient to have some sort of mobile living space. There are all sorts of mobile living spaces to travel in really: there are the hip and retro Airstreams, funky 80s Winnebagos, creepy looking vans with no windows, and trailers that attach to trucks. Leah Giberson has decided to create an illustrative series of such mobile gems in still life settings.
Giberson is from Boston and focuses her paintings on a photo realistic style. Her work, which is largely void of a human presence, transmits a stillness and tranquility that manages to still infuse energy and dynamism to the final work. While the paintings are based on photographs of various trailers in suburban settings, the “excess noise” is removed from the picture, creating a clean and quiet backdrop. The artist showed this particular series in July this year at the Nahcotta Gallery, but you can also check out more of her work at her shop.
