The Routes Galleries

 

 

 

The image above contains several of the skeletal origins of most of the artworks that are presented in "The Routes Galleries." Among them are evolutionary transformations of the first images created in the late 1980s, that are on display in the "Plotting the Routes" gallery.

Since that time I have continually explored these diagrams aesthetically, beyond their literal function, to represent iconographic interpretations of some of the greatest global achievements of humanity.

Most of them have been created in several versions, including various choices of uniquely conceived “faux” picture frames, which have become integral elements of an artwork. The option also exists to purchase these artworks with real picture frames or with no frames at all. Of course, wall-hanging artworks are often traditionally framed but it is quite unusual when the frames themselves become integral components of an artwork. In such instances I have created the visual illusion of a three-dimensional picture frame that in some instances simultaneously serves as informative symbolism pertaining to a particular artwork. Thus, the frame becomes something visually akin to a quoted passage or footnote that accompanies a written text.

Names of streets and metro stops are often those of historically relevant public figures and places. Most of the faux frames include such explicit details pertaining thematically to the cultural origins that these artworks abstractly represent. In most cases, details of actual maps, some of them historical, which include formal names of metro stops and geographical locations, appear to be engraved or inlaid into the faux frames. Also, some of the "frames" contain culturally relevant elements of creations by modernist artists, including Frida Kahlo, Piet Mondrian, Antoni Gaudi and Wassily Kandinsky.

Likewise, some of these artworks contain thematic photographic backgrounds that interweave with the abstract representations of various underground metro maps, such as a free-flowing luminous interpretation of a Buenos Aires map, which illuminates the imagery of tango dancers.

In the "Hybrid Photo Art" gallery I have taken this concept even further, whereby the faux picture frames at times visually merge even further with the rest of an artwork.

Detailed close up views of each artwork, that are only visible when these artworks are printed in larger formats, are posted on their individual gallery pages. Acrylic prints are highly recommended, for they best elicit 3D-like effects, while achieving the most beautifully expressive representation of these artworks. Metal prints, which emit brilliant colors, would be a suggested second choice. Various realistic textural effects have been employed, which include those of oil paint, canvas, fabric, stone, concrete, brick, leather, tile, metal and other surfaces.
