Urban Transplant in Grant, Virginia

Sculptures resembling urban architecture are placed in a rural area as a personal monument of past & present environments. The intent was to join two very separate, opposite residences of mine, Richmond being the current, Grant being the previous. The model was placed in a spot with a certain level of childhood significance – a lookout point – the highest ground of immediate proximity from home. The color palate for the structures is dull grays with subtle pigments as well as washed out pastel tone. This was inspired by Chris Ware’s color choices. It was not intended for the models to be realistic architecture, but rather to playfully hint at the idea, which this palette hopefully supports.
