C-Shop, Coffee Shop at University of Chicago. From series of paintings of the Main Quadrangles on the University of Chicago campus. I've lived in Hyde Park for many years now and have enjoyed walking through the campus, picnicking at Botany Pond, and having a hot cup of coffee at the C-Shop on a winter's day. I'm also an architect and my paintings are inspired by the beauty of the Gothic Revival architecture in the Main Quadrangle, symbolizing the conservative traditions and stable framework of the university, contrasting with the life and vibrancy of the ever-changing student population, illustrated with their multiple electronic devices, backpacks, and diversity. This artwork uses a stylized approach to realism and representational art.
