I’m starting a new series of multi-media work. A multitude of small paintings adhered to a cradled wood panel. The piece portray the sense and scenes of the city peppered with images of flowers. I was in Chicago, in that part of the Loop, where the sun never penetrated the city concrete. I turned a corner and there, on the steps of a dilapidated, boarded up building, was a flowers stall. The flowers, some blooming, some already past their prime, wallowed in oversized buckets. For a minute it all seemed so perfect.
The piece is composed of several small paintings on unstreteched canvas, mounted on chip board, arranged together into one 30″ x 24″ piece.
