THUMBNAILS ABOUT THIS IMAGE PREVIOUS 11 OF 15 NEXT In Search Of
The image In Search Of is a landscape that is familiar but is transformed into a different reality which questions the actions of human beings and their effect on the environment.  The piece is obviously a flooded and destroyed Pittsburgh, but it is not without signs of life.  

As a child, living outside the city, when driving along the parkway, I would look up at the skyline and the PPG building would always stick out as a place of mystery and intrigue; almost magical, or a diamond in the rough, pulling me in.  That is the feeling I tried to incorporate in this disparate landscape.  

The image becomes a far cry from every Pittsburgher’s idea of a perfect city landscape.   PPG, the only place separated in this environment, unaffected by the consequences and actions of man and nature, becomes a beacon of hope where people search for answers.  The viewer is uniquely  and interestingly included in the piece through the idea of separation.  What kind of vessel are we looking out of and will we ever get out?
