NYC Modern Paintingby EBN Art Studio
ABOUT THE ART
This modern piece is the second image in my new "Beyond Abstraction: Freight" series. One day while my husband was flipping through channels, we stumbled upon a travel show. At one point, they were showing the freight moving in and out of the port of that particular city. I couldn't believe how bright and colorful the containers looked from above! This beautiful view of freight encouraged me to find more aerial shots of these sea containers from various cities and use the images as inspiration for a new series of paintings. This particular painting shows a view of freight in NYC, which provides a new and innovative way to enjoy the brightness of this city in your home. As with the other "Beyond Abstraction" images, I focused on simplified, clean shapes. The other abstract paintings focus on organic shapes, mimicking the natural items that inspire the images. In contrast, this series will decidedly have more geometric shapes and straight edges because of the man-made structures that serve as the muse for these paintings.
