A Large Commission This Week
I am working on a large commission this week that intails what I refer to as my 'City' Drawings. These are made up of drawings of individual buildings that I repeatedly construct, one on top of another, until they aggregate into a 'city'. These drawings are labor intensive, but I have books on CD and public radio to keep me company, and I'm always happily surprised by the end results. The commission thus far includes five panels, each 40 x 32 inches, created with acrylic paint pen on archival mat board. I've been playing with the color a bit, and with the configuration of the urban space in each piece.
