Unknown Terrain

“Unknown Terrain”  is a culmination of Andrew Hem‘s imaginative view of the world.  In his show statement, Hem shares his personal goal of painting the Seven Wonders of the World by the time he is thirty years old. Here, he portrays sites like the Grand Canyon and Mount Everest, recreating the experience of seeing them as an emotional one, rather than capturing their physical reality. Although these are famous places, many of them are out of reach or facing the threats of industry, becoming “unknown” to future generations.
