20th Century Visions

My entry for ArtPrize comprises of photo collages with a centerpiece measuring 30"W x 37”H and two smaller works (22W” x 37H”) to form a triptych. The collages celebrate automobile design and its place in the American 20th century urban landscape as well as its relationship to architecture. The narrative for the art was informed by the work of Edward Hopper, Pop Art, and vintage advertising photography. My intent is to incorporate the aesthetics of traditional printmaking and painting into contemporary digital print media. The photographic elements of these prints were enhanced to appear more linear and congruent in juxtaposition.
