Worlds Within Worlds
Acrylic on Glass Installation 12ft x 9ft
Living in a city like Chicago, we see thriving businesses and storefronts every day. We also see abandoned buildings, 'for rent' signs and spaces that are empty and falling into disrepair. One of the ways to awaken and revive a tired space is to create in installation using acrylic paint on glass. I created the abstract piece for a storefront in Lakeview that needed some attention. For this piece, I was inspired by symbols and patterns referencing folk art of different cultures. I am interested in exploring imagery that connects us.
Special thanks to the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce and their commitment to hiring artists to transform their community and enhancing the daily lives of those living and working in the Lakeview neighborhood.
