Michael Angelis’s oil paintings unsettle the conventions of landscape and urban painting, focusing on fleeting moments of infrastructural development rather than sublime natural scenery or monumental architecture. Angelis frequently depicts construction sites in transition, an interest that developed out of his watching the radical transformation and redevelopment of the urban landscape near his studio in New Haven, Connecticut. The artist strikes a balance between the order and chaos of a site, rendering the rigid concrete structures in careful detail while allowing the scale of the unfinished infrastructure to overwhelm his canvases. Angelis also paints skies; in these works, the fleeting lighting conditions echo and augment his compositions’ ephemeral subjects. beatles
