This contemporary composition looks like it could have been made by a Modernist painter of the early 20th century. Bold graphic patterns are stacked and packed into a vertical format, conjuring a city of skyscrapers and steep hills – San Francisco, perhaps? We see logo-like sun motifs, tilting diagonals that could be part of a bridge, and a blue wavy pattern at lower right that could evoke water. The artist, Gould, learned early to compose visuals in a frame, often inspired by taking photographs. This street scene is refreshingly new, yet its flattened forms and brightly colored patterns hearken back to the era when Cubist abstraction was new.
