Besides the architecture, there are other elements in my work that record time: cars, clothing, street signs, lights and traffic. All of it is part of a documentary on modern society. Even my use of color evokes a sense of things past. My work is an attempt to depict familiarity with a play on time; to recognize a place, but to wonder as to what is really seen. Even after living in San Francisco for more than 12 years, I still do not cease to see something new on the same roads I travel each day. With the constant development inherent to all cities, some of the buildings I have painted are already gone, replaced by modern structures that are already a new part of history. I love the constant evolution. My work is a portrait of a place, a place right here and now.
