Watt &Shand #5 is from my ten piece series about the transformation of the former department store building in Lancaster, PA into a modern hotel and convention center. The building was gutted and the site razed, but great care was taken to preserve and reuse the Beaux Arts facade of the building. In the initial stages of construction it was supported by an elaborate steel scaffolding. The screened images in this work are from a photograph I took one afternoon when the sun was shining through the empty windows, and the border print is a repeating image of the same photograph.
The Structures on my website. I wanted these works not only to serve as a historical record of this particular building and project, but to also be able to stand alone and be of interest based on their design and execution, and this acceptance, and that of #7 and #10 into Artquilts XV in Chandler, is very encouraging in that regard.
