Ross Racine - Evergreen Park
Ross Racine - Days and Hours of Brookdale Gardens 6 (detail)
"Drawn freehand directly on a computer and printed on a high-end inkjet printer, these works do not contain photographs nor scanned material. The subjects of the recent work of Ross Racine may be interpreted as models for planned communities as much as aerial views of fictional suburbs, referencing the computer as a tool for urban planning as well as image capture. Investigating the relation between design and actual lived experience, the works subvert the apparent rationality of urban design, exposing conflicts that lie beneath the surface."
