Painting - Oil On Masonite
Tiger stadium still sits on the well-worn corner of Michigan and Trumbull. It was opened in 1912 and served the ball team until 1999. Throughout these many years the city and industry have grow around it. I wanted to include an industrial aspect in the composition because of the extreme importance it serves to the city. So, I began the composition with an exterior view of the venue. I placed the facade of the ballpark in the top left corner. I tried to represent it in a fashion that made it seem worn, used and very industrial. This area opens up the rest of the composition, but it remains overlooking the entire time. I relate the importance of this section as the dependence athletes have on outside industries for support. The rest of the painting builds on this precedence. The stairway allows us to freely enter the playing field. On the way, we pass posters of cubist renderings, which still are very important to the compositions. When we step on the infield we are overshadowed by the bleachers. The umbrella like overhanging second deck is one of the defining features of old tiger stadium. This upper section, also creates a dark mysterious area below the structure, which is mimicked in the lower half of the painting.
