"This is a piece I did of the vacant Brewster-Douglass Housing Projects in Detroit. It's actually a compilation of two different trips, the first time I photographed, the buildings had not been painted and the second time I went they had and I loved things about both trips so I combined them. The original sold at a show with Thinkspace Gallery in Philadelphia at Gallery 309.
The idea came about as most of my pieces do. I wander around the city, this one happens do be in Detroit where I lived for some time, and I find places I love and take photos of things I find beautiful or interesting. It's sort of a wandering, intuitive way of finding inspiration. Then I take the images back to my studio and work with whatever inspire me at that time or I think would work well for certain shows." - Stephanie Buer
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Stephanie Buer, now based in Portland, has spent over a decade observing the urban landscapes in Detroit, MI. She has an intimate appreciation of urban desolation and a love for the once prosperous buildings that have been abandoned to time and the elements. Her works in both oil and charcoal capture with photo-like detail the layers of gritty history that accumulate as these places succumb to the manipulation of vandals, artists, and the steady persistence of nature.
