The Sublime in Everyday Life II

As I promised  a few days ago I am posting the last piece I made for theTranscription Project at my college.

My closing piece is  a painting showing the  contrast between the environment overground and underground in London.   This fascinating dissimilarity  between the modern impressive architecture and the terrifying old underground world in London has intrigued me.  Besides, we only can  experience one or the other – being  either overground or underground. Since I wanted to capture both, I came up with this triptych consisting of 3 sections – oveground, underground  and  the  connection between them represented by escalators.

My primary concept was based on a changing perspective which I purposely used also for this final painting.   All the three parts I connected in such a  way  that a viewer cannot clearly recognize  where one part ends and the other begins. Here is the complete work which  was preceded by  a lot of photo references and sketches.
