Landscape Paintings 1 and 2
These paintings were constructed after looking at buildings and en in and around my Brooklyn neighborhood. In these
paintings I use stylized images for both the buildings and the trees and concerned about the overall feeling of the work. Like my other paintings these works are large shaped oils on canvas
which hangs from the wall down onto the floor. I choose to use mesh to help illustrate the imagery of snow as in "Snowy Rooftops" and darkness as in the painting
Oil On Canvas with Mesh
7.5' X 4.5'
I was still fascinated with buildings in Brooklyn, particular in winter. This painting not only shows the building but also winter clouds and footprints (my actual footprints) in the snow. I was interested in presenting the rooftops as dominating white geometric shapes. It was also important to add another element to add to the imagery of snow, in this case the white mesh.
