Warehouse 12

Piece description from the artist

Abandoned industrial structures and decaying communities have become part of the American landscape. Often they sit like islands surrounded by contemporary sprawl. As we become further removed from the craft-oriented and working-class past these areas become reminders of our evolution into a post-industrial culture. This project documents the massive structures of concrete, glass and steel that make up this landscape.In an effort to capture the sense of scale and rich detail of these regions the work probes what we think of as the traditional picture space. Foreground, background and subject have been isolated and reconstructed. The skies, structures and roads are separate planes—the sense of perspective is disrupted. The final large scale constructed landscapes focus our gaze onto these industrial and engineering marvels.
