I chose these art works because I have always been a fan of landscape, cityscape, and anything portraying some sort of isolated "hidden oasis" so to speak, I especially enjoy those paintings of foreign landscape or even surreal landscape. It gives me sense of restlessness, as in, I am not fully satisfied with just looking upon what is only visible in the painting. I feel compelled to go deeper and find these places in order to find all of its hidden locations and secrets. It draws me to want to find these places that I have never before seen and to experience all that they have to offer. To me these paintings are like a virtual tour of the world or even someone's mind.
