    About The Work

    This limited edition print by Ross Racine has an abstract quality in the composition. The parallel diagonal lines appear as obscured roadways and buildings. The rose pink ground has a visual texture of digital grain with yellow hues. The static pattern of color contrasts with the highly rendered clarity of the visible aerial view of buildings in the periphery. Drawn freehand directly on a computer and printed on a high-end inkjet printer, Racine’s drawings do not contain photographs or scanned material.
    The subjects of his work may be interpreted as models for planned communities or as aerial views of fictional suburbs, referencing the computer as a tool for urban planning as well as image capture. Raising questions about the relation between design and actual lived experience, the works subvert the apparent rationality of urban design, exposing conflicts that lie beneath the surface. These digital drawings are a comment on the fears as well as the dreams expressed in suburban culture. Signed and numbered.
