The artist Amy Park has made urban architecture her sole subject of visual exploration. By focusing on the facades of city buildings—famous skyscrapers and forgettable office buildings alike—Park renders shimmering expanses of color and patterns, tightly cropped compositions of repeat motifs that turn concrete and glass monoliths into nuanced geometric abstractions. Park’s interest lies in abstraction as much as architecture, and she’s found the ideal medium to showcase her mastery of the brush. Through the ethereal expressiveness of watercolor, Park gives us gorgeous portraits of the modern urban landscape, awash in glass and metal, transparency and luster, with finesse and precision unimaginable in any other medium—or in any other hands.
