In this ongoing body of work I seek to explore the character of the contemporary urban landscape through painting. The layers of organic and geometric forms, patterns of color and texture, lines of architecture, roads and hydro wires express a sense of place shaped by a history of urban transformation. I am drawn to the spaces and structures that have served and survived generations but have become overlooked or entirely forgotten. They are pieces of the urban narrative so often lost to time and “progress.” Through a responsive and gestural application of material, my aim is to express the personality of these frequently disregarded historical facets, fixing them in time.
