About this artwork

My paintings of Mid Century architecture combine both tradition and modernism. My artistic style is rooted in art history and landscape painting, so when I approach the iconic Mid Century architecture it is with an eye towards interpreting a contemporary subject with old world techniques. The paintings are rendered in oils on canvas using a subdued palette of warm colors, applied in layers to achieve a luminous effect. I like to focus on a detail of the building that incorporates dramatic lighting and composition. As a nod to my landscape background, I contrast the hard-edged intricate geometric shapes of the buildings with the organic forms, in this case the flowing movement of palm trees and the highlights stretching across the lawn and the rock in the foreground. wrap canvas painted brown/black on the edge, wired and ready to hang.
