|Jennifer McChristian "Rue Saint-Antoine"|
Oil on Canvas
Experiencing this work is like feeling a chord progression pulling us from one area to another before we come back to the major key. To keep the chord moving, the artist uses temperature contrast (the warm colors used in the building, figures and truck within the cooler colors of the buildings, street and sky), isolation (the dark figures within a light space), and one-point perspective (angles of the street and buildings vanishing to a single point).
That's better than a bagel with butter and jam.
