Neighborhood View Painting Series

Brooklyn artist Ben Cowan did "Neighborhood View," a series of three paintings, for the Ann Arbor District Library Westgate branch in Michigan.

The series depicts the subtle relationship of domestic and ecological life through the interplay of multimedia materials, natural and architectural details, and light.

Meet the Creator

"My paintings feature familiar Brooklyn sights cropped, collaged and simplified in order to capture a concentrated experience that refers to the interpersonal and supernatural. Wrought iron gates and architecture are the backgrounds to every glance of Brooklyn’s surroundings. By pairing the open invitation of domestic architecture and firm boundaries of decorative gates, the paintings deliver a sense of promise and denial. A deep space is implied but the depth is fragile. Color, sensuous surface and familiar foliage entice; but, still a longing remains."
