Phendrana Drift is composed of two collections of paintings. The first collection is comprised of a series of 35 paintings all measuring 14" x 18". They were produced by pouring white glossy paint onto matte black backgrounds. The end result depicts snowflakes falling at night in a skyscape. These stark black paintings differ from one another even though they employ the same technique. The effect is a variation in pattern, indicating a heavy or light snowfall. Installed in a grid formation, the artist plays with the patterns to create an atmosphere.
The second collection is comprised of a series of 3 landscape paintings ranging in size from 33" x 44" to 4' x 5'.
These pieces take on a first person perspective – the perspective of a driver. There are matte black skies, and
road-sides framed in white snowdrifts. These minimal landscapes lack road signs or landmarks, indicating a
non-specific geography and thereby allowing the viewer to insert themselves personally in the space in a physical,
emotional or virtual fashion.
