BLDGBLOG: Building Storm
This Bldgblog post (link in title) is from 13 months ago but is fascinating, especially as it relates to the paintings I'm currently developing. In the spirit of Velocity Girl, the Smiths and countless other bands whose pop rhythms belie anger, so the colors from a pre-bubble bursting 2007 forecasts sooth the splintering content in the image above (study for a painting to be started tomorrow).
The houses grows out of my complicated history to home—my own tendency towards wanderlust, my curiosity about other nomads, and my father's history as the builder of homes. With the upcoming year yet again overseas, we'll see how this imagery evolves...especially as I leave Florida where emergency specialist express concerns about hurricanes transforming vacant homes into violent projectiles. Yikes.
