This series of works emerges from my interest in urban industrial vernacular architecture — in this case from sites in Japan.
I love the poetic relationship presented by making art about the grand qualities of mundane buildings — especially in a large-scale, panoramic format. Each scene is an abstraction of a three dimensional space as well as an abstraction of the passage of time throughout that space.
I strive to capture architecture as a living process — of construction and deconstruction. The unexpected juxtapositions left by the marks of people who build and occupy these spaces embody the same organic concept. The layers of history are also brought to life in this panoramic format as the eye compares the relationship of buildings and the spaces between them.
