Brooklyn-based painter Rodney Dickson spent the month of January as an artist in residence in Everglades National Park through the AIRIE program. The work he made there was influenced by his perception of light and space in the park, which he found intense and shocking. The artist writes, “Dawn, dusk, nighttime, midday: the light is sometimes so intense and magical, it obliterates almost all imagery in my work—just a blinding light.”
