This is a working series exploring the imagery of smoke stacks. It is a combination of paintings, photography and sketches. The multi media approach is reflective of the searching process. I have been searcing for a way to best represent this very prominent part of both my personal and a larger public landscape seen nearly everyday as we walk, drive and commute through our daily lives. Through they are easy enough to ignore and look past, I want to stay a moment longer and reflect on the way our American industries are transforming, or not, into cleaner and safer forms of energy. Drawn to the bold colors and steamship design of the Capital District Energy Center in Hartford, CT the project has expanded to include other prominent somke stacks found in urban and rural areas.
