The transformation of the American city continues to inspire and inform the vocabulary of my recent work. Urban renewal and bland gentrification fuel this changing landscape and crash into existing neighborhoods resulting in an odd mix of signage, industrial forms, architectural details, and materials. This mix enters my work on both a conscious and subconscious level providing an endless source of shapes and colors to compose with and manipulate. At times, I feel that the resulting abstractions mirror this process better than a purely representational depiction and capture this change in progress. At times, it begins to feel that I am surrounded by one endless American city that offers the same view no matter how far I travel. This work records my attempt to capture and share these observations.
