Scott Listfield is an artist from Boston, Mass who created these wonderful paintings featuring a lone astronaut roaming a land of “pop culture icons, corporate logos, and tongue-in-cheek science fiction references.”  The lonely astronaut theme reminded me of work by Dominik Smialowski or Jeremy Geddes, but these are very different, both aesthetically and conceptually.

The astronaut is certainly out of his comfort zone in these paintings.  He’s surrounded by the material world, and even without facial expressions, you get the idea that this Earth is not his home anymore.
