Artist Statement, Crossroads Wall

"Trains have fascinated me as a visual subject for quite a long time – their textured and multi-layered surfaces, the graffiti, the geometrics of a boxcar side view … . This compilation showcases all of those interests.

 

It is a composite of train paintings  inspired by images from Richmond locations (ACCA Yard, Bowtie Cinema); the Baltimore Train Museum; from Bolivia (I was so interested in trains that I traveled to Bolivia to its famed “Train Graveyard” on the high salt flats, where steam engines have rusted away for more than half a century); and various other train museums (Chicago, Denver), where old, rusty trains have found a home. 

 

I hope you enjoy them also – not necessarily as a train enthusiast, but as someone who enjoys interesting visual subjects."
