Iconic Structures 

 
 

The Architecture of Forgotten Places

 

These are portraits of buildings where the structure is visibly vulnerable to the elements. The forms of decay are a testament to histories of use and misuse. The colors of the paintings, real and imagined, bring life to what some people might call an eyesore. The structures much like the paintings record their condition in a language of stain. 

 
They capture the beauty of things forgotten by time: imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

 

 

 

Abstract

 
There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about. -
Helen Frankenthaler

 

 
 
 

Totems is series of paintings  celebrating the grain elevators that dot the landscape of North America. A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people. The term totem is Ojibwe. These structures, while often abandoned, stand as protectors of the wild landscapes they overshadow.
