Universe in Blue

Hi there, my name is Liana, the creator behind the Cosmic DC photo series. I transform the photos I take of DC into whimsical cosmic landscapes. What I like most about it, is that the process allows me to imagine beyond logic’s reach. It’s curious to see what ideas surface, ideas that may have not come to pass if I didn’t entertain my curious hunches.

I knew I wanted to incorporate Sudo in the piece somehow. After a couple alright ideas, I thought to myself, what better way to capture her true essence than her brushstrokes. Her own natural artistic hunches. I picked her "Study In Blue #1" painting because I found the long and pronounced blue brushstrokes quite beautiful.

Sudo painted her piece during a dreary time for many of us. In pairing it with one of my earlier pieces, "Glaciers at the Jefferson", the blue monochromatic look and feel was preserved. In sadness lies gratitude, for what was and for remains now.

I intend that the added hints of warm tones found underneath the blue strokes brings your focus back to the present moment. Away from the anxiety of the future or the shame from the past, and instead, onto the stillness of the present now.
