Artist's Description

The above abstract cityscape, was created for Sojie 12 workshop….
It was based on the the photo by Shutterbug called Somewhere in the Middle
This is my fourth translation of photos for Sojie…if you have not been to see the workshop it is an eye opener and well worth it…..in addition, you can see how I created this work, by clicking the above link

Acrylic on Canvas…5316 Views 67 Faves…

I will quote my answer to Billyboy"s comment as to my thought processes in creating the work… "When I saw the photo, I did think of destruction and decided that destruction would be part and parcel of the whole scheme, but also that the support would be part of it…
So not just a painting of destruction, but the destruction of the paint, in part going right to the fibers of the canvas..
At the same time there is light…the light that comes from hope…the light that glowed right from the start, that was there all the time, but which got obscured along the way…a viewer can get a spiritual awakening from the experience as evinced by Michael’s choice of music for his title, or take it as something very physical, very literal
