R. Michael Wommack

Distinction Award 2018 / Drawings and Pastels


A recent series of pastel drawings by R. Michael Wommack is influenced by his childhood memories of growing up in the suburbs of Levittown, PA.  Inspired a vivid dream, Michael imagined rows of dark houses that were illuminated only by the light of interconnected backyard swimming pools, something that no one had when he lived there in the 60s. Nostalgic and haunting, these dreamlike pastel images can be interpreted in many ways by the viewer, and that is exactly what Michael intended.  Created entirely from Michael’s imagination, without the use of photographs, he turns the mundane sameness of the suburbs into a thing of beauty.
