City Blocks. 2015 contact
City Blocks , below, done in early 2015 , are three-dimensional sketches, tactile expressions and explorations of crowding , spacing, growth, expansion and connection in urban areas. They were made by assembling wood blocks I had already cut and painted. They are small, 2x2x3" up t o 8 x10x8"
There is a synergy between these small structures and my paintings and installations.
A major focus with these works was how to present them; eye level, on the floor, table top?
together or separate? with other work? The introduction of tranlucent materials was inspired by the glazes and transparencies in my paintings and refers to the glass curtain facades of urban architecture.
