“Concrete blocks are beautiful. My painting ennobles this humble building material. Naked. Unapologetic. Fully exposed with all its faults, yet proudly displaying its sculptural beauty. No smooth skim coat. No fancy stucco finish. Its beauty lies in its imperfections--a lesson, perhaps. The painting is quite large and is painted in acrylic on silk, then mounted on hardboard cut to the shape of the concrete block. It's a trompe l'oeil (fool-the-eye) painting, completely flat. The center holes are cut out, so you see the venue wall through them. The artwork is mounted two inches from the wall, casting beautiful shadows. Concrete: a worthy subject after all.” Nolan Haan
