Caption
Sunlight floods the yellow background of this abstract work resembling a city skyline. Three-dimensional paper-based media extends beyond the frame, approximating skyscrapers and buildings complete with geometric recesses and cutouts that resemble windows and doorways. The palette shifts between warm reds and cool blue tones in horizontal bands, as if passing through different neighborhood zones, or from day to night. The artist, DC-native Georgia Mills Jessup, created several multi-media abstract images of her hometown. Though this work does not specify a particular city, it invites viewers to experience the vibrant, urban energy characteristic of modern metropolitan landscapes.
