The artist has a wonderful sense of design for depicting the vastness of space found in his art. In a museum a person is generally attracted to realism piece when its recognizable from across the room. Gwyn’s panoramic paintings of highways and the ocean make the viewer feel as if they are on the location themselves.

Having seen the work of this artist in person two other artists who show a great talent for depicting vastness of space are Rackstraw Downes and Keith Jacobshagen.
