Part of The Artist's Life series

Mara Korkola creates small, snapshot-sized meditative landscapes. Painted in one session, her works have both a freshness and sense of immediacy. Using her own photographs, she proceeds through the artistic process to transform mundane environments like highways and suburban streets into a scattering of lights that take on the beauty of constellations. The profile of this artist goes from conception to finished painting as she takes us through the nocturnal inter-urban roadscapes she so enthusiastically embraces as her main subject of inspiration--those in-between, faceless, silent places of our modern age that are ugly and threatening yet wondrously beautiful.
