printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
One of a series of fine art prints entitled 'Chicago Surreal'. The original shot of the waterfront and iconic architecture was taken from a vantage point on the Chicago River in 2009. Because there are already so many pictures of the architecture of Chicago in thousands of books this image of the Jewellers/Pure Oil building on East Wacker Drive had to be different. This is meant to be a fun picture, zany, out of kilter and full of movement. Only the Pure Oil Tower itself seems (only just) to resist the rhythmic power of the boogie boogie. A picture to dance to?
