Piece description from the artist
A unique monochromatic composition of the former Sears Tower (now Willis Tower) framed by two urban structures. The Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere at 110 stories high.
Using photography composed of strong architectural elements (organic and man-made), Ari David Rosenthal creates “re-imaginings” of his traditional fine art photography that reach far beyond the original image capture. Through a synthesis and application of dimension, saturation, and texture, Rosenthal’s newest pieces pop with dynamic fluidity.
A native of Milwaukee, WI, Rosenthal holds a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and an M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota. During the 1980s and 90s, he, a talented musician, played sax, flute, and EWI in various bands within the Milwaukee, Madison, and Minneapolis areas. In 2003, he returned home from Los Angeles and created OzMoses – a design, video, music, and marketing company. In 2004, OzMoses shifted heavily towards photography and videography and, in 2008, became Ari Rosenthal Photography.
