Greendale Collection


 

From the artist:

Currently, I am working on a collection inspired by my hometown, Greendale (all works are in inks).  I’m drawing inspiration from Greendale’s history, being a planned community. The work itself looks like frontal architectural drawings, as if I were the urban engineer planning my town.  The main piece, titled “Greendale, WI” is on vellum paper, which is often used in architectural renderings. The supporting pieces are on postcard size paper, as if to be advertisements to others about the upcoming planned community.  The response from others from Greendale has been a sense of nostalgia. My work is now evoking a powerful psychological response, such as nostalgia, from others based on familiar geography to them. This work then becomes focused not only on my own experiences, but on that of a community.
