This artwork is an image that was printed on canvas and painted over in certain areas with acrylic paint, including gold and silver paint.
I captured this view while flying over midwestern United States with my camera. I was struck by the beauty of the transition from city to mountain. I call the artwork circuits because the city below resembles the layout of a computer circuit board to me. I am fascinated by repeating forms and functions on micro and macro scale levels. This artwork represents the resemblance of a computer circuit to a city and then grapples with nature in the transition to the mountains. To me, the mountains appear to take the shape of a whale.
This was an image I digitally edited for contrast and brightness, printed out onto canvas and painted over in certain areas.
