Erste mal, danke dir für alle Favoriten!
Ne, ich denkte nicht an The Clash, trots, wenn ich denke dazu, das stimmt wohl! Ganz einfach, das einege letztemal, das ich im Montreals Suburb war, drausen von Insel, bemerkte ich Strummasten und Telefonmasten Orgie. Kabeln überalles im Jahren 2010...

ja, "london calling" brachte mich auf die idee...
ich mag strommasten, hier in deutschland gibt es diese sorte leider kaum noch... deswegen habe ich mich über deine suburb-serie sehr gefreut... :D

diese Mastern, so weniger, so besser wäre es.. Leider, das ist zu teuer Kabeln im Erde zu stecken...

ja, vielleicht hast du recht - wir haben hier in deutschland fast alles unter der erde, ich weiß nicht ob das besser ist... wahrscheinlich bin ich nur ein romantiker, der eine schöne kindheit gehabt hat und sich an abende erinnert, wo er mit der musik des windes in den kabeln eingeschlafen ist - die kabel gingen direkt ans haus, an der stelle wo mein bett stand, und ich habe oft die eigenartige musik des windes gehört, oft klang es wie fremdartige chöre, geheimnisvolle stimmen die gesungen haben - manchmal war es unheimlich, aber niemals bedrohlich - daran denke ich gerne zurück... :D

Interesting use of color The yellow seems to be surrounding the houses with warmth Love the crisscross of telephone/electrical wires that keep everyone connected.

The yellow was put late to patch up for initial error on colors.
I got it wrong at first and decided to put the forefront dark and to lighten up a street a bit further back.
As for the wires, it may symbolize connection, thats a possible lecture, no matter what I had in mind ;)

Thanks for the favs! :-)

Loving the messy, stark contrasts. Makes it appear much darker than it really is. I especially love how the power poles resemble burnt wood, and seem 'burnt out'.

The brush strokes are excelent as well. Pallet knife?

Thanks!
I did not think of them as being burned, but it does make sense. A very possible lecture!

Palette knife, indeed.

Gotta love (or hate) the art critics when they look too deep into the pieces, haha.

haha! So true! :D


Something which, by the way, I have no problems with! Art is a discussion brought on the public sphere, which does not have to be the artist's monologue. If the artist does not understand his own genius, it merely confirms Hegel's theory. (note : I am not talking for myself here)

This is really interesting and different. I love your choice of colours, it really creates a darker mood. Great work !

Thanks!

I had lighter colors in mind, but most importantly near-monochroma. It turned out darker, but given the reception I got so far, its very fine :-)
