About the Artwork
"Paulina + Chicago" is one of the six pieces from the "Chicago in Winter" series. Inspired by moments of urban beauty, these pieces draw upon the warm feelings the city can evoke even on the coldest days.
"Paulina + Chicago" features the view looking East on Chicago Ave. Mom + Pop businesses line the street and downtown Chicago beckons in the distance. A rusted-out car sits parked for what might be an eternity. The journaled words "grateful," "an ascension," "the leaving of toxic energies" grace the top and bottom of the image, susggesting this moment at this intersection might be the start of something new. Even in the dead of winter.
Using a layering technique with an original printed photo, the "Chicago in Winter" pieces are one of a kind with no prints made. Art comes unframed and can be floated on a large mat for a larger piece or framed closer to highlight the detailed image.
