I've admitted before that I am a construction junkie. I will probably paint the Crystal Bridges construction site till my demise. But, I photograph almost every construction site locally. I have coined my own term for these paintings. I call them "Temporary Realism". Yes, it deserves quotes. The beauty of a construction site is that it isn't anybody else's vision. It's like a butterfly's chrysalis, and I want to show you the beauty of transformation, not the finished project. This vision is mine alone, not to be found on any architect's desk, and I'm more than willing to trade dust for color. It is a sad day for me when the shell is complete and my muse departs.
This particular piece explores the subject of chaos and clarity. I hope to achieve a flat, and somewhat overwhelming construct on close viewing but while standing back a full-on landscape view. So far, so good.
