A pair of large reflective paintings on aluminum, one bright blue and the other yellow, The Oasis meditates on the possibilities of the semi-public space of the courtyard while poking fun at the harsh conditions of viewing art outdoors in winter. Drawing on the vocabularies of traditional arts media along with architecture and transportation infrastructure, Erik L. Peterson creates a site-specific installation for The Arts Club garden in winter.
