Dark City - Ongoing - Inkjet prints - Variable sizes (approximately 24"x36")

“Imagine this fairylike Temple blazing like sunlight among those savage black rocks.”
~ Frederic Edwin Church

The works in Dark City adopt the stance of the Hudson River School painters and apply it to national retail chains, franchised restaurants, and manufactured neighborhoods. They look at the bright siren song of the national inserting itself into local contexts. They attempt to render the seductive neon glow of multinational corporations as being as sublime as Bierstadt’s and Cole’s painted sunsets. A deliberate inversion of the political agenda of these 19th century painters, these images look at where those sunsets led. Like the film it borrows its name from, Dark City examines the erasure of memory these locations create.
