Cool Couple In Paris is an above-view, figurative painting from my series Overview. It depicts an overhead view of a cool, young Parisian couple walking down St. Germain in Paris. As captured from my balcony at the Hotel Lutetia, the two Parisians contrast each other; he is shabby chic and she is high fashion. The style of this painting reflects a type of mark making. a kind of “Pixelated Impressionism” where the expressive swashes of paint depict the motion of the person walking, by expressive rendering of pixels from the original digital video reference image.
