These contemporary architecture paintings are snapshots. I look for contrasts where they occur: such as new buildings, with clean shapes and lines, alongside old decaying ones; or geometric architecture softened by nature over time.
With these contemporary architecture paintings I look for perspectives that convey the scale of the buildings. That sense of Awe at their sheer size. By experimenting with angles, foreshortening and shapes, I seek the essence of the vision behind the creation and that childhood sense of looming where the building feels like it will topple on you.
Buildings reflect the dreams of the people who create them. By using an abstract technique I capture that dreamlike quality. The masking fluid creates a linear structure which holds together the fluid and energetic paint and ink shapes. The ink, especially, allows mini explosions of colour which evolve during the drying process.
