DREAM OF WET PAVEMENTS
Bridge & Station (1st-state)
The Dream of Wet Pavements series takes its title from an apocalyptic poem by the Australian poet Francis Brabizon––and was an attempt on my part to come to grips with our near-decade of living in the crowded and sometimes toxic urban world. In this group of paintings I attempted to evoke my sense that our cities are places of grace as well as violence. The image of a city flooded in light and water became for me a symbol of simultaneous melancholy and hope.
