This is the underpainting of a new painting I am doing. Though I will include an artist statement for this eventually here are a few words on this series I am starting now: The series is on Modern Ruins. Humans have built structures going back at least 50,000 years. In every part of the world we have erected something but in the end nature takes it all back. What is left after all this time however is what we call ruins. Some day what we have built in the Modern era will be gone. This series is commemorating these ruins of our time as they exist today.
This painting is of a rusted out car I found in the woods near my apartment in Minocqua WI.
