Here are some select sections of one of my recent mixed media artworks titled
"Triumph of Man".
It's a 24" x 18" canvas painted with acrylics and filled with original old stamps, enhancements of some of my photos, a piece of the front page of an original 1964 New York World's Fair brochure, architectural drawings and ephemera creating
layers and layers of textures.
This work is a metaphor for the achievements man has attained, built and layered on the discoveries of so many- each creating a foundation for the unending new innovations within society. I attended the 1964 World's Fair as a child and remember being in such awe of these new 21st Century technologies- seemingly futuristic in nature. The experience of sitting in moving seats within dark cavernous exhibit halls- taken on a journey to see striking new designs was just miraculous.
Just think what new revelations and discoveries in science and technology will become the staple of American life in the next half century!
