WAYNE THIEBAUD: CITY/COUNTRY

Thiebaud's work has always acknowledged roots form the art history of the West and the East, and the cityscapes developed from his practice of plein-air painting and sketching, and from combining various formats to result in new compositions. The cityscapes, executed in oil on canvas, and later acrylics, push artistic limits with a greatly exaggerated perspective that emphasizes the verticality of compositions and confront the viewer with an uncomfortable feeling of vertigo.
