Although the landscapes in Clay Wagstaff’s paintings are drawn from memory, each composition adheres to strict mathematical principles such as the golden ratio, the Fibonacci sequence, and dynamic symmetry. “I want to create the feeling of another dimension, that there is a design behind the physical world, that there’s a blueprint or a spiritual design behind everything,” Wagstaff has said. The artist applies broad layers of solid color to create the backgrounds in his paintings, while patches of moss, tree branches, rocks, and sea foam are rendered with meticulous attention to detail. Wagstaff employs an ambiguous sense of scale and perspective to generate the appearance of uncanny stillness.
