Electric Utility Poles interest me for a few reasons.

  • They’re ignored yet ubiquitous.
  • They’re reminiscent of a crucifix yet come in many variations.
  • They jettison up into the sky.
  • I imagine invisible current running all around and through them.

This illustrates a new process for me. I started working a little differently by combining loose brushy abstract marks with figurative forms inspired from my snapshots around my neighborhood.
