Artwork > Bridges

These pictures were created using bridges as subject matter in what are essentially Formalist compositions. Images of bridges are secondary to the overall formal appearance conveyed through technique and the elements of design. The bridge motif was chosen because it could provide structural visual elements and because it was a metaphor at the time for me traversing a blue period between two happier and healthier periods.
