Avenue Street
Oil on canvas

"The Shoebox Gallery is pleased to announce Bill Colburn's sited paint work. Mr. Colburn abstracts the careful viewing of everyday sites from his home windows resulting in fantastic textures, abstractions and scale shifts. He will apply this technique to the Shoebox Gallery and its environs. The viewer need be prepared to be mind altered rounding its o-so-familiar corner to be drawn into a tidepool of colors a la Bonnard, late Monet and high Rothko. These colors will wash away the effects of the grime that inspired them." -Sean Smuda, Shoebox Gallery curator. Sold
