Over the years I like many have “people watched”. amazed at how 99.9% of the population walk around “blind” to what surrounds them. I wanted to address this by creating art from what is beneath us in our everyday lives.
Beauty can be found in the most inanimate and innocuous of objects.
I have chosen the abstract patterns upon the pavements and sidewalks that we walk in our daily routines, road markings we miss while crossing the streets blind to their abstract beauty.
A dirt-laden stark canvas of asphalt and concrete tattooed with bright paint markings creating gritty images, but often adorned with colorful overtones.
I AM ALL TOO AWARE THAT MANY PEOPLE WON'T "GET" THIS PROJECT AND THAT IS FINE. ART IS A SUBJECTIVE MEDIUM AND AS THEY SAY "is IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER"
SO OPEN YOUR EYES AND MIND TO THE IMAGES BELOW. SEE THEM FOR WHAT THEY ARE. SINGLE PIECES OF FINE ART. PHOTOGRAPH's CREATED OUT OF WHAT MANY DO NOT SEE.
