Throwback Thursday: Kansas Cityscape

Kansas Cityscape

Kansas Cityscape ©Sonya Andrews, acrylic on canvas

I painted this cityscape of Kansas City when I was in college. Basically, I collaged images of different Kansas City buildings and landmarks together and painted my own “memoryscape”. Conceptually, what I wanted to convey was what I see when I close my eyes and think of Kansas City. I don’t really think of individual specific scenes, but rather a surreal amalgam of different buildings that hold a specific significance or that have simply stuck in my mind due to proximity and repetition.

I photographed each building and then created I layout I liked in Photoshop. Then I printed that out and projected it onto a canvas and traced the basic outlines of the buildings. I painted according to my own whims and added some people in the foreground. I did a few paintings like this and would like to return to this theme again at some point, but maybe using my current style.
