"From a distance, Greg Stimac's photographs appear to be abstract, almost like celestial constellations. On closer inspection, however, we find this night sky of stars is in fact a dust cloud of insects and grit. These wonderfully detailed photographs come about by the artist affixing a sheet of plexi to the grate of his car for the duration of a journey. At journey's end, Stimac scans the plexi, recording its inhabitants and prints the resulting image. The images represent a familiar sight and experience that accompanies any road-trip and, importantly, a tangible record of time and space."
