Description

This piece 3 x 3 feet.

I use pieces of my old lithographs, old paperwork from Detroit including maps, car material and music imagery of the rich history of #MOTOWN. The perspective is an aerial view from the Detroit side with Windsor and the river abstractly represented above. My old lithographs represent the GM building which was once known as the Renaissance Center built in the 70’s. I use strong lines created by the wax to build the depth amongst the buildings. The images of wealth along the ration books convey the suffering and inequality that occurred amongst the growth of the industrial age. The vintage piano keys and letters remind me that the creative energy in Detroit is as strong as its industrial counterpart. It is one of the most inspiring places I know and love.
