Urban Flow

One-Way Streets
The highlight of the year 2014 for me was being juried in to Tamarack, a showplace for the creative arts, near Beckley, West Virginia. Three of my paintings are on display now through April 6 in the fine art gallery there.  

On the left is a 30x15 inch canvas entitled One-Way Streets, which I started as a collage of papers that had been stamped with hand-carved stamps and arranged to represent a map of the city of Charleston.  A circular stamp in the top center represents the State Capitol building, a series of small squares in the lower center represents Town Center Mall, and other landmarks such as bridges are also represented. Numerous layers of glazes cover the collage, and painted lines represent the maze of one-way streets that often confound visitors to our city.

Also accepted into the "Urban Flow" exhibit were "Don't Look Back"(below) and "Rooftop Series No. 1" which was shown in my last post.
