Stuart Shils Window Collages (Part 3)

By September 12, 2016Uncategorized

For 30 years Stuart Shils painted urban skylines and tuscan landscapes, painting outside or by looking through the window. He simpliefied the landscape into bright, vague, and subtle studies of color. Now he’s at that same window, his view turned inward, making collage, camera and light projections. They’re called Window Collages. The titles are poetic/scientific documentations:
