Architecturally influenced painted work.
A painting themed after personal experiences documenting the Waukegan Harbor area from 2005-7, while studying photography. Structures towards South Beach were removed from the landscape rapidly since the mid 2000's for a variety of reasons—from environmental contamination to outdated industry. Bookended by the Lakeshore and the enigmatic Amstutz, history of commerce up and down Pershing is evidenced by layers of roads, railways, and the shells of old boats. 
Graphite played a more integeral role in Pershing than in previous paintings, special attention paid to color and tone shifts by loosely-defined sections. 
Watercolor, acrylic, and graphite on wood. 36x48", 2014
