This painting was inspired by a trip to Hong Kong, I was so impressed with the sky line. The wet humid stomy climate and the mountains made the scene more dramtic.

Curator’s Comments:


I like this stretched out and long horizontal landscape of Hong Kong.  It is picturesque, but also slightly surreal, as if the skyscrapers are resting on top of the intense blue waterline.  The cool blue, violet and gray color palette and value shifts give the entire painting a mood of watery transition, despite the solidity of the architectural forms. I don’t detect any spatial disruption that can come from using panorama photographs as painting sources.  The small motorboat is an interesting transitional element, leading the viewer into a space that while vivid and majestic, is not actually inviting.  The stormy sky, as you mention in your caption, offers drama and mystery if not obvious turbulence.
