City Mural and Other Urban Works
This series, entitled “City Mural and Other Urban Works” strays from many of the themes explored in last year’s GAF exhibit, “Trees of the World.” These paintings examine the interface between the natural world and the city. They pose questions about urbanization, collective consciousness, and habitation, among other topics.
