As I drive around my area, I find myself drawn to the obvious - that is, the in-congruent object interjecting itself into the landscape. A number of years ago I did a painting of a landscape with a stoplight hanging into the view. I think this painting is like that older one. The difference, between now and then is, now we have more things demanding the airspace. People get truly upset when “They” want to put a new cell tower up in an area that has poor reception (here, it is the Adirondack Park). The thing is, we have been doing this (intruding into the airspace) since the middle ages and before - any barn or church or house or castle that went up - covered part of your view. I tried to include enough of the many things that go up to make the point that many things do intrude on our view but they are things that we think we need - such as, food, religion, communication, housing, water, goods and in the center, patriotism.
