This photograph is a digitally altered view of the Chicago Skyway Bridge over the Calumet river. The Chicago Skyway was built to be a shortcut from State Street in Chicago to the steel mills on the Southeast border with Indiana. Transformation Is true of this region on a symbolic level as well as being my artistic media. The vibrant colors in my photos represent the vital role this industrial hub played in developing the Calumet region. Displayed at the Bernard Gallery in Indiana.
This digital art is from my series, Steel Giants Of The Heartland. The series celebrates the industrial area around 95th Street and the Calumet River, with its bridges, electrical towers, and train tracks. They are powerful icons of a recent era, an era of boundless dynamic energy. These outsized icons now loom here in this gigantic, eerie, outdoor museum. I was drawn to the steel-laced, elevated Skyway bridge that provides a unifying presence running throughout many of my photographs.
My digital art is printed on enhanced matte, archival paper. It is shipped well-protected in a sturdy cardboard tube. If you prefer a different size photo please use the message link on the right side of the screen, “Questions for the seller” to contact me. I can also provide prints on canvas.
