I am fascinated with the profusion of light in the cities. It is reflected on buildings, in windows, on water, even in the sky. What always strikes me is how all of it is related to pieces of the surroundings. That’s why I paint my cityscapes as abstracts with interconnecting shapes, colors, and reflections to show everything is connected not only to the elements that surround them, but to us as well. I work patterns into my paintings as part of a larger whole. The buildings in my cityscapes pick up color from the sky, the plants, and from their own reflections in the water. Everything is revealed as connected to everything else. You can purchase the original paintings, or prints on both paper and canvas from my online gallery.
CITY IN SPRING
acrylic on stretched canvas
This is from my cityscapes series that depict buildings taking pieces of the sky and parts of nature to show how everything connects to itself. I paint these to show how we are all connected, how we are all part of the patterns that make up the whole. The colors in this one are bright and vibrant with the promise of spring. Even among the artificial world of concrete and steel, the green of the new growth and the blue of the sky add themselves to the mix to make a more connected whole.
