Open-Roofed Industrial Environment with Letters
Acrylic on paper
h19 x w14 inches
This painting investigates the incorporation of letters of the alphabet in an imaginary environment. Urban environments, such as old industrial sites or public monuments, are full of weathered text: lettering that has been corroded by the atmosphere or just aged. These are a frequent inspiration in my work and were in the back of my mind when this painting was created, using random stenciled letters.
