From a distance, Gold Mountain 2019 appears to be a singular representational view from a fixed position in space. On closer reading, the painting unfolds as a seamlessly interconnected network of experiential spaces. Gold Mountain 2019, like the Earth from outer space, is a multitude of places that are revealed by the vantage point of a viewer. Layers overlapping are loaded with meaning. Each viewer finds a unique point of entry, layer over layer, the viewer creates an individual worldview, yet this worldview is shared by all observers of Gold Mountain 2019.
