ABOUT THIS ART:


"Friends have been telling me for years that I needed to explore Detroit. I finally had the opportunity to do so last summer (2014). It was an urbex wonderland! I only had two short days to gather photo reference of the city for my paintings and was overwhelmed by the volume of material. My paintings seek to capture the wonder and excitement in exploring what was once familiar, now otherworldly, the beauty in decay.

My painting " No Lifeguard in Duty" was from the Brewster Wheeler Recreation Center. I am told that it has now been slated for redevelopment. I guess the graffiti party is over. Sadly, the majority of my subjects disappear soon after I paint them. It makes me feel like some kind of Grim Reaper of architecture. But for years now I have had remarkable luck in capturing them before they go." - Jessica Hess

This print comes signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Jessica Hess and 1xRUN.
