Ride the Rapids in Grand Rapids

Dorothy Dorney's avatar Dorothy Dorney

Dimensions: 72"x 54"x 1” Title: "Ride the Rapids in Grand Rapids" Ride the Rapids pays tribute to the bike friendly community of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The centralized downtown bike path that runs parallel alongside the Grand River inspired the imagery in this photo. The imagery captures the “kinetic” energy of the experience when riding alongside the river’s rapids. Subtlety superimposed behind the curved handrail of the trail you will find the reflection of falling river rapids bubbling through the rocks. The purpose of the juxtaposition of imagery is to invite the viewer to sense the “synergy” of a bike ride racing downstream alongside the Grand River on the central bike trail located downtown Grand Rapids.
