SF No. 38, American Alps, Part 1


acrylic on photograph

28.5” x 32.375”

San Francisco, 2016-2017

This piece is part of a series working with found photographs by photographer Peter Fordham of a town in the Swiss Alps, overlaying the buildings with colors sourced from various publications on American identity in architecture. It comments on the American imperialism within a western lens. These four images are taken from the same point as the photographer changed their perspective. The overlaying of the American colorization inverts the photographer's attempt at familiarizing the viewer with the space, cultivating a sense of the alien and unfamiliar.
