DESCRIPTION

Artist Statement- The Skylines of My Life

My work is an amalgamation of my multi-faceted background; architectural research, classical figurative painting, photography, and the main tool to my visual vocabulary: steel. Steel is very seductive for a multitude of reasons. Its’ pure structural strength, fragility to bend, ability to capture time in its’ inherent chemistry, reflective nature, and its’ easy of joining together via the lucid quality of a weld.

My goal with these five pieces is to distill the skyline to the least amount of linear element to relay the image. I decisively chose to keep the three dimensional steel building pieces as beautiful rusted elements. I heated the water panel of the cities to capture the flow and movement of water in nature. The skies were painted and ground to capture the mood and to tie the works into a cohesive body.

These pieces change and alter at different vantage points due to the luminous nature of steel. They are alive, constantly changing just as the real cities do on a daily basis. These pieces are meant to remind us all of the beauty, power, and mysticism that the built environment possesses over us all.
