The framing option on this RUN includes a 1 Inch Black Wood Frame with UV-Glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.
"The piece is titled Heartland 2. The original windows themselves are layered woodwork with acrylic and aerosol paintings within them. I want people to look around within the window as they would from the air and enjoy it. This window is one from my ongoing “Windows” series, I chose to share this view as it’s middle America, which is where I grew up.
The windows are a continuation of work from a two person show with my wife Tina five years ago. About a year ago I decided to revisit them. The show that Tina and I had together was called “Over Under”. I concentrated on things in the air while she focused on things underwater. I was making pieces with characters sitting in rows together as temporary roommates. While working on those I thought about the window seat, how special it is, how it can be taken for granted, and how the view can put things into perspective." - Jim Darling
