All Your Holy Days, From Crayons To Fountain Pens, We Were Heathens

By Ben Crawford

"I’ve been thinking a lot about landscapes over the past year. Landscapes are subject to the changing of the seasons, variations in light, and even alterations to their topographies over time. This makes the experience of being in these places quite unreal to me at times, almost preternatural. Whether it’s somewhere new or familiar, my perception is inevitably informed and distorted by the prism of my memory and imagination.

This collection of paintings is about those landscapes and places that don’t necessarily appear on any maps. They are ‘the unwritten places’ that exist in a moment of time, tethered to our hearts and memories."
