Product Description

Also known as the Gateway to the West, or the Gateway Arch, this is one of my favorite landmarks in the United States, because of its utter simplicity and soaring elegance.

This is a limited edition print (of 10). It is available as an 12"x8" print, signed, dated, and numbered.

-------Artist's Statement--------
I am more interested in what we remember than what we see. Memory is an active process. We re-interpret and re-construct every time we re-member. What drives this re-interpretation? I believe that when we see, we take away some key aspect of what's in front of us, whether it is color, or texture, or shape, and when we remember the scene, we fill the details with our imagination. At least, that's how it seems to work for me :-) When I go back and look at old pictures I often find they are quite different from what I remember. With my art, I am trying to understand this process of abstraction and re-imagination.
