“Downtown 2” commissioned work, 30″x42″ acrylic on canvas
This piece was inspired by a trip to Pittsburgh. I’m considering it the second in my series of abstract expressionist city spaces. It’s more lively and exciting that the first “Downtown”. The energy of the scene is reflected in the brushwork, and the space is more complicated and dynamic. It’s reflects less the physical nature of the area, but more about the perceived excitement of a city buzzing about with activity. Capturing that feeling is something I’m drawn to; this is a theme I want to continue to explore in future work.
