Photography and acrylic on sculpted canvas.
This painting is one of my fragmented memories of remembrance from my childhood. This series called "Hutě" was inspired by my trip last summer to the Czech Republic where I revisited where I lived as a young boy. At that time the steelworks, just outside of Ostrava, now decommissioned, were the hart beat off the region. As I walked threw the acres of derelict factories I remembered when the night sky would turn red as the steelworks were throwing out the red hot slag. At that moment I wanted to capture that fragment of my memory.
