Humboldt St

Untitled (Humboldt St, Cheesman Park District, February 2015) copyright 2015 Douglas Stockdale

There is something about the circa 1910 window casements that connects with me, probably as this reminds me so much of my Grandparents house in western Pennsylvania.

A window makes a wonderful metaphoric subject, but as a genre, it is on the edge of visual over-use and the danger of becoming trite. Nevertheless, I find that this composition is interesting as I investigate the memories of this house on Humboldt Street within the context of the Cheesman Park region. The translucent curtains provides a layer of indeterminacy evoking a feeling of some place in between the internal and external experiences.

Cheers,

Doug
