….In 2012, newly weds Ruby and Eli Challenger hit the road in a 1978 Kombi van.

 

The dreamy getaway that they had imagined became an odyssey of greasy car parts. These paintings capture the essence of their road trip through the inland deserts of America. 

 

Underneath the expansive painterly skies, Challenger introduces us to the ever-changing road and its inhabitants; trucks, truckstops and telegraph poles….. 

 

Exhibited at Gallery East
