Hyperrealistic Paintings of Vintage Summertime Kitsch

We can practically feel the plastic lawn chairs sticking to the backs of our thighs while looking at the hyperrealistic paintings of Leah Giberson, an artist we discovered on Booooooom. Her fascination with suburban kitsch — Airstream trailers, boats, and other shiny middle-class trophies — may have developed since she was “raised by artists deep in the woods of New Hampshire.” Giberson’s attention to the reflections in the leisure behemoths and surrounding environment offers a quiet and curious narrative. Take a closer look in our gallery.
