Paul ChojnowskiLight Sources: Empire State (Drawing of Iconic New York City Landmark Building)
Unique burned & scorched drawing of the Empire State Building in New York City on paper. Art is installed in a custom made shadowbox frame made of mahogany. The box is wired with a small LED light bulb that when plugged in, lights up the drawing from behind. The piece glows with a gentle light, ideal for hanging in low lit hallways, bedrooms or interiors. Doubles as a softly glowing night light! Artist Statement: Walking after dark in the light filled streets of American cities like Boston, New York and Chicago has been my inspiration for an ongoing series of work I call Nocturnes. As a pedestrian one is aware of being surrounded by the rich array of sights and sounds. I have no interest in a studied representation of a street scene per say. My intent with this series has always been to capture a memory, a fleeting moment of what I saw from the corner of my eye as I made my way amongst the bustling city dwellers. Visually, my subject is light: taxi headlights reflecting off wet pavement, neon blaring and shop or apartment windows aglow. I love the energy of the city after dark and I hope to some extent to have captured it in works like On the Street and Out of the Darkness. About the art: Throughout his career a distinguishing characteristic has been the use of nontraditional media and tools in his art making. His current work, images burned into paper and wood, is an extension of that predisposition; these burned drawings evolved as a result of his conscious effort to embrace art historical traditions while rejecting the traditional processes.
