Under sky: dusk, rust, stone

This is the new piece I am working on. Fractal reflections, corroded metal from an industrial disaster, lichen coated gravestone, worn by weather and time, the color of the sky at dusk, grid work skyscraper arrays, and the beautiful Zhalih, a part-time muse who lives around the corner.

Art and Corrosion: Portland Graffiti

The abandoned wastelands of industrial america, chainlinked art galleries on corrosive edge. Artists up against decay, fire, oxidation, and time. Here is some work I have found. McCormick and Baxter Superfund site, and Taylor Electric.


Reflection and corrosion,
after the fire, time, the rain and the wind

Surrealistic wheat paste, contrasted with the decay of old posters, faded paint, narrow lathe.
