Previously, Wagner Collective and Artist Courtney Wagner’s main focus has been abstract aerial landscapes and the connection between Landscape and memory.
For this latest body of work however, Courtney has turned the eye upward, creating the Celestial Series.
In a world where we are constantly dealing with struggles and searching outside ourselves for answers, one cannot help but look up and seek answers beyond.
Instead of focusing on the land from a birds eye view, and finding correlations between places and spaces, coordinates and peoples, countries and turmoil, these new works are no longer looking down on all, but are uplifting, non-gravitational and allow the viewer to acknowledge the significance of their presence, realisation of their size as we escape velocity.
Here the combination of material and meaning is proliferated to represent these fluid, alchemical, scientific celestial occurrences.
