Remnants of a Dying Building

Mixed Media, 2019
40 x 60″

While wandering through downtown Los Angeles, I came across numerous buildings that appeared abandoned, much like the one depicted in this painting. Rust seemed to cascade down its facade, mirroring the desolate ambiance of the surrounding streets. It became evident that the city was accustomed to continuous reinvention, with new businesses and competing enterprises constantly reshuffling its landscape. As a result, remnants of the past intertwined with visions of the future, leaving certain buildings and neighborhoods like this one behind.

In this image, my intention was to capture the peculiar colors, textures, and the sense of decay that emanated from a building that had surely witnessed a multitude of stories. The combination of strange hues, the rough textures, and the metaphorical rust dripping down symbolize the layers of history and experiences ingrained in the structure. It serves as a testament to the resilience and enduring presence of these overlooked spaces that have withstood the test of time.
