Fire, smoke and nightmares

A play on perspective and strong angles, this work by Luis Alonzo-Barkigia has touches of the collective fear we (Americans) faced in the wake of 9/11/ ground level the explosions, fire and smoke begins to consume the picture plane...visually spread out across the picture plane, we group these puffy elements...

The clever interplay between background/foreground, developed and underdeveloped spaces make this piece an interesting exploration in creative visual problem solving...the tops of the structures all lead down to the epicenter of the conflict, where flames and smoke are flowing from the Empire state building...the point at which the nightmares originate.
