John Wilkes - Paintings of the Gowanus at Night

John Wilkes paints directly on photographs of the Gowanus Canal taken at night. The images disintegrate beneath the brushwork, and hover between the surface quality of the painting and the moody tone of the original exposure. The works range on size but all of them display a master's painterly touch combined with a deep familiarity with place and time.
