bones of the city

While walking in the neighborhood of my former studio I stopped to admire the buildings built in the early decades of the 20th century. These paintings serve as visual signposts to this neighborhood and those vaguely remembered from my childhood. As a way of memorializing the landscape, I have chosen to paint the bones of these structures, those that once existed, and those simply imagined. My intention was not to paint these buildings and apartments literally, but rather to re-fashion them as if formed from their original slabs and chunks of stone and timber.
