Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The Golden Gate Bridge is a global icon, a triumph of engineering, and a work of art. In American terms, it was shaped by the City Beautiful movement, the Progressive era, and the Great Depression. More mysteriously, the Bridge expresses those forces that science tells us constitute the dynamics of nature itself. Like the Parthenon, the Golden Gate Bridge seems Platonic in its perfection, as if the harmonies and resolutions of creation as understood by mathematics and abstract thought have been effortlessly materialized through engineering design. Although the result of engineering and art, the Golden Gate Bridge seems to be a natural, even an inevitable, entity as well, like the final movement of Beethoven's Ninth. I started with the sky and after that I painted the sea rocks. Finally I added the bridge and the small buildings suggesting the town where the end of the bridge touches the land. I was there in 1992 and the landscape seascape impressed me so much that I planned to make this painting but didn't have the mood and inspiration until Richard Robinson organised a workshop about this bridge. Hope you like it. George
