Art Description: This triptych constructed of layered hand-torn roofing felt, an eerie desolate tale unfolds before the viewer. Inspired by Cormac McCarthy's "The Road", these black landscapes depict a blasted terrain, devoid of foliage or color. The road represents the easy path of least resistance, while the river element stands in for the more difficult, winding path. These are part of an ongoing series of artworks and have been shown from the East Coast to Chicago. As the largest members of this group of work, their construction was quite physically demanding and their size creates an imposing presence. While they are related as a triptych, they can be displayed horizontally or vertically, shown together or spaced apart.
Medium Used: Roofing felt and paint
