Nue by owen-c Nue by owen-c
The roof in the building that stands before me is the roof of my old schoolhouse; behind it, I can see tiered balconies of my old tenament, the tents of the army barracks, the steeple of the chapel where I was once married, the iron gates of the hospital where I lay for many years.
Everywhere I go, I see only buildings from my memory. The architecture speaks in signs to me; it tells me that I have reached the point in life where all is memory; where there exist no more futures, no more potential events to be transmuted into memories, to fill this crowded and stagnant City. There is no mistaking it, the road that now lies before me is the point of final departure.

---------------

Third in the series, Chimeric Cities. A sort of collage made up of windows from different buildings that I have done in the past, a little experimental sketch as it were

If I'm not mistaken, nue is a mythical beast that would resemble anything its beholder want to see. It's a perfect title for this conceptual piece man =D

Thanks, yep, mythic creatures who are shape changing or made of multiple animals are the names of all the pieces in this series

p.s. I always like to say, what doesn't make you stronger, kills you.

Very cool! I love looking at pictures of different kinds of windows and doors, so this is quite interesting to me. All the colors are just great!

Thanks, yeah, I collect that kind of thing as well as reference.
These are all ones I did for other buildings and put a lot of detail into, so I'm in an artist block-ish mood lately and was thinking of how to create something new from parts of previous works.
