‘Under the unminding sky’ – Paintings by Gregory Thielker

Being from Ireland means that I’m used to the rain. It feels like I see it nearly everyday. And despite a despairing dislike for the stuff, I must admit that sometimes I do occasionally find myself swept up in a simpleminded and childlike daze as I watch it run down my window. It’s a simple pleasure but one which I can’t help but like.

Perhaps that’s why I find myself really in love with these paintings by the American artist Gregory Thielker. Taken from a series called Under the unminding sky, his work capture the beauty of the rain, but it also explore the relationship between it and the medium of painting. As water falls on the windshield, Thielker’s style explores how the environment outside changes through fluidity, texture, transparency and mixing. Check out the whole series on Thielker’s website here.

    i saw a similar series a few years ago, but the subject was a person lying under water, blowing air out of their nose (and being viewed from directly above). anyway, both series of paintings are terrific.

    It is beautiful in a simple way. I can think of many stories for my literature just staring at these pictures.
