Description

When Lorelle Otis Thomas, Professor of Graphic Design and Illustration at Grand Valley State University, began this new series of paintings, she realized she had a problem. Her reference photo had not adequately captured the shape of one of the subject buildings she intended to paint. Since it was not possible to travel back to the original site of the building, she used Google Maps Street View to capture the view she sought. This added a surprising new dimension to her work.

 

This series of artwork reveals the artist’s physical and virtual discovery of architecture and landscapes across the United States. The pieces reflect her love for architectural design and a newfound appreciation for early American architecture and the organic and available materials used in their creation.  On display until December 5, 2012.
