Overlay cityscape

Layering of the new over the old, a fearful enterprise...the city is covered in screened over a photographic image...only the tops remain, a comment on change and the environment...Alex Lukas makes a statement on the battle of man verses nature...again and again.

He does a great job of playing with the horizon...breaking the illusion with the ripped page from the book...the city scape is consumed and violated by the water...with transparency we see the world below, but cannot touch it...we live above it all, but only for a moment...impermanence and anxiety are the overriding emotion behind this collision of mediums.
