Atlanta in 1980

This started out as a collage. I referenced a photograph of the skyline of Atlanta in approximately 1980. Most of the collage material of the skyline is references to Atlanta, photographs of the Fox Theater, images from Gone with the Wind, Coca-Cola, text from Atlanta history books, etc. When I was happy with the skyline, I began painting over it, and scraping the paint off. You will see different collaged pieces peeking out everytime you look at it. I hope to continue this series later this year!
