Market Street Rhythms

Market Street Rhythms

We each contribute to the rhythms of the city. While this collective energy helps define our urban spaces, brings them to life and gives them their character, it is our individual participation in this process that is often lost in the mix and goes largely unnoticed. Market Street Rhythms is a series of paintings which draws inspiration from everyday people on Market Street, San Francisco, and observes their role in this greater urban dynamic.

Use of abstraction, riotous colors and geometric shapes gives us a feel of the street as we focus our attention on the more “organic” individuals. This treatment also allows for the blending of the subjects into their urban environment, and vice versa, in order to acknowledge the potent influence one has on the other.

Whether we are young or old, rich or poor, many of us share the streets of our cities. We each play a small, but vital part in a much bigger picture.
