The Modern (Industrial) Landscape

Sunday, June 27, 2010 · 3 Comments

Perhaps it’s because I’m a city dweller, perhaps it’s because I live near “the wastelands” (i.e. the undeveloped land along the Gowanus Canal), but I love industrial landscapes. They’re a modern, less explored subject; one that many of us can relate to personally. It’s the familiar, the mundane, the ugly and the annoying. It’s the blinking neon sign across the street, the partial view of the elevated train track, the trucks and vans dotting your neighborhood. But by way of the artist, these city views are startling and at times, beautiful.

    Art featuring urban landscape are cool – different, really, although nature landscapes would tend to make the home more serene.

    While SOME of us can get through the snow to these lolvey little pastry shops in Manhattan, those of us trapped on a hill in the snow in Suburibia, PA had to make do with the ingredients in the house. So I made some LOVELY homemade corn muffins that were a BIG hit with the family (did I mention that they have just the slightest bit of honey)? But alas, they looked nothing like YOUR lolvey pastry purchases
