Chicago Starry Night Lights series

Georgia Velisaris's avatar Georgia Velisaris

The "Chicago Starry Night Lights" series includes my photographs of 7 iconic Chicago buildings (Water Tower & John Hancock Building, Navy Pier, Wrigley Building, Trump Tower (as it was being built), Marina City, Tribune Tower, and Ion & Prudential Buildings). The photographs were originally taken with film during the day time and printed in reversal for more of a night time feel to them. The sky in each piece is hand-painted in acrylic, and any building/landscape details are hand-painted in oil. The sky background color is either painted in blue/purple/red. Each piece is conservation framed that includes triple matting (Rag Mats: small grey squares, blue/purple/red/, black), conservation clear glass, and grey metal frame as shown. The dimensions (in inches) indicated below are for each piece in the series. The exception is the Navy Pier piece where the width and height dimensions are reversed (landscape).
