In October & November 2019, I was the Featured Member Artist at Gallery 121, a co-op Gallery at 48 Bridge St. East, Belleville Ontario, Canada, where I have been a member for the past 3 years. The show was a series of 17 canvases, watercolours and drawings, which included 5 Oil on Canvas nudes that were inspired by watercolour sketches executed at the Baxter Arts Centre Life Drawing. The show title was called Drawing a Parallel and represented the evolution of an art piece from sketch to finished oil on canvas and then beyond to non representational art pieces. There were also 2 recent plein air / studio landscapes and several paintings from past shows. To purchase any of the pieces in this show, please email me directly at danielfobert@gmail.com.

I hope you enjoyed the show!

Oil on Canvas, a painting inspired by the 1920's Modernist Georgia O'Keeffe, 24" x 36"

The When Where and Why of this painting

Georgia O’keeffe lived in New York city from 1925 - 1929 where she was fascinated by living in the heart of a roaring city which was bigger, grander, more complex than any other before in history. She extolled "the mystique of the skyscrapers" which for her the symbol of this modern American city.
"With the eyes of a modernist, she has simplified the internal articulation of these behemoths, thus emphasizing their dark, vertical silhouettes against the deep blue sky," stated art historian Eleanor Tufts.
In 1929, after the market crash, Georgia became unhappy with her marriage and city life. For her, skyscrapers which had been a symbol of America’s success, now became a symbol of it’s failure. The excitement of the roaring twenties was over and she moved to New Mexico.
My own fascination with New York and with skyscrapers has been life long and the inspiration for this painting. The art deco inspired Empire State Building was finished early in 1931 shortly after Georgia left New York for the southwest. I skewed vanishing point below the bottom of the painting tocreate a cityscape devoid of people, with monuments of steel, stone, concrete and glass the only testimony of their existence.
