My art is about observation and interpretation of the built environment. I focus on decaying, peeling, structures, and infrastructure around us. My eye is drawn to combinations of pattern, texture, color, and lighting that I find worth capturing and replicating. I’ve collected these types of images for decades and brought them to life in three-dimensional reliefs, oil, and acrylic paintings. My purpose is to draw viewers’ eyes to the visual appeal I find in these images that they might miss when in sight but can discover in the context of art.
