In this series, Rasmussen posits the simple idea that we can find moments of transcendence in ordinary places. Each painting depicts a view from a parking lot. These transitional spaces are neither here nor there, rarely one’s starting point or destination, and are an experience many people have in common. City skylines and industrial canyons become the spaces in which Rasmussen invites the viewer to search for those moments of wonder. Transcendence can be found in the angle of a shadow on a concrete wall, the intersection of two roof lines, the texture of corrugated metal.
