Acrylic on Brick
I was commissioned by the Sprout Fund Public Art Program to create a mural for the neighborhood of Lawrenceville in Pittsburgh, PA. My intention was to create a large-scale blue sky with a series of thought bubbles that would rise from the horizon and transform into wispy clouds.
I have always been fascinated by the relationship between thoughts and clouds, both as images and as metaphor. With this mural, I wanted to create a composition that would have an immediate and compelling visual impact, but that beyond the initial reading, might complicate, question and evade the viewer.
Special thanks to Brian Brown for the painting and support. Additional thanks to Curt Gettman, Jonathan Kline & Christine Brill.
