Title

The Ashes of Our Past/Alone

Description

San Francisco's Embarcadero is an essential part of the City, but when we walk along it's famous piers, we have to wonder how much we have altered the picturesque view before us. "The Ashes of Our Past" shows these drastic alterations in such a way to evoke a feeling of loss by burning the top layer of the drawing; indeed, there is a loss of the romantic vision of a perfect, pristine landscape today. "Alone", the companion piece to "The Ashes of Our Past," is a more personal take on a burned photograph that hopefully many can relate to.
