New Painting “Facade” finally finished!
April 6, 2008
I have finished this painting today. It took me quite a while – mainly because I had other things to do. Sometimes I don’t feel worried when other duties take away my painting time because I consider it a necessary break to refresh thoughts and inspiration. Yet with this painting I feared to lose the track on my “Reminiscences” series. It did not happen. Ah – and I changed the title from “The Tower” to “Facade” because this is what it actually is. Also I like the fact that it is much more ambiguous in its meaning.
Originally I dedicated the “Reminiscences” series exclusively to the motifs of the Olympic Student Village but this painting is a child of the original project and the idea was to grab other architectural motifs from buildings which are planned to be taken down. I have already described the story of this building here. So I decided to create a new series which will have more architectural motifs and cityshapes and called it “Architecs”.
For the next painting, I decided to do, I am going back to the motifs of the village – there are more than enough to be covered still. Until I need a break again….
And here it is now
