Inspired to capture nature’s elusive luminosity found in near and far distances, Breakey uses iridescent colors to recreate the sky’s ephemeral properties. In doing so, Breakey acknowledges nature’s superiority to create with light and atmosphere. When taken the time to view potential treasure on display, short moments become longer periods of observation. These observed events of nature become as simple, dense, and reductive compositions serve as a respite or pause for the viewer.
