Under the red sky
printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
Fine art print from a collection entitled 'Chicago Surreal'. The original image was captured in 2009 and edited in Photoshop. The scene is of Anish Kapoor's stainless steel construction, 'Cloud Gate', in Millennium Park, Chicago. Onlookers constantly congregate around this amazing edifice, drawn by the weird and wonderful visions of both themselves and their surroundings reflected in the polished mirror surface. In this print a handful of onlookers seem to be gravitating towards the underside of the dome, as though seeking to shelter from the strange weather outside. The angry red sky is a harbinger, perhaps, of menacing climate change ahead. The sky inside the dome's protective skin, however, remains a calm and welcoming blue, a safe haven perhaps from all the turmoil outside.
