Neil Raitt creates abstraction through repetition. Through the endless repetition of natural motifs, such as mountains and trees, Raitt creates landscapes without horizons, landscapes suspended in an atmospheric haze. Raitt's practice is time-consuming and machine-like. An enthusiast of Bob Ross, Raitt often lifts his imagery from a landscape featured in an episode of "The Joy of Painting." In Emerald Waters (Permanent Green Light), a tapestry of trees, snowy mountain peaks and bodies fill the canvas in amplified and kaleidoscopic hues.
