About the Artwork

Jurying Item #3 I enjoy the narrative of back alleys and their structures. So often they belie the polish of their storefronts. Alleyways hold within them their own entity, or sense of community if you will. This particular alley had been calling to me for quite some time. Although these alley entrances had recently received renovation, it is the grittiness, less prettiness, I prefer. I appreciate the truth and character contained within structures of age. For this work, my intent was to combine the interest of shapes within the vantage point, deconstruct the polish of renovation, and present in a semi-abstracted approach. I largely relied on palette knife application to remain loose. The palette knife is a relatively new method of application for me. It excites me with its possibilities! "Alley Fascinator" celebrates character and heritage in structure. Survivors of time, elements, and often neglect. The stories are there, should we offer a moment to reflect upon their presence.
