Artist's description:

This contemporary painting displays a lively and colorful cityscape scene on the University of Chicago campus. I’m an architect, as well as an artist, so I really appreciate the Gothic architecture on the UChicago quads. Cobb Hall at the University of Chicago was designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb, and is the oldest building on campus. Cobb modeled his designs after the Gothic style of architecture at Oxford in England. I used my architectural skills to create a realistic portrayal of this elegant building that represents its proportions and depth. When I paint the UChicago quads, I like to contrast the the old and the new, tradition and change, with the students’ electronic devices as a symbol of change. The solid, gray buildings surrounding the Main Quadrangle symbolize the stable framework and traditions of the university. The students are portrayed in bright red, yellow and blue; these primary colors suggest the life and vibrant diversity of the ever-changing student population. Viewing the painting conveys an upbeat and positive mood. It was recently displayed in a juried exhibit at the Glessner House Museum, a National Historic Landmark in Chicago.
