Site: Highway 90 / 94 running through Chicago
Medium: oil, plaster, ink, and pigment on fabric, dimensions variable
Date: Winter 2012
Description: I was motivated by a desire to capture the force of the construction and use of the highway initially through photography and ultimately through the materiality of paint, plaster, and ink. I was particularly interested in how abstraction from an image can allow for a heightened relationship to the underlying forces of the site from which the photograph was made.
