Horizontals: Rusted (2018)January 1 - 31, 2018, The Faculty Club, UC Berkeley, Berkeley CA
This “Horizontals: Rusted” series consists of images of rusted industrial tubes and I-beams at Mare Island former naval shipyard near Vallejo CA. They are sent to Mare Island for refurbishing (cleaning, sanding, welding, coating). I photographed them before any work was done on them, looking straight at them, resulting in a series of “Horizontals.” The tops and sides of the rusted tubes and beams show detailed abstract patterns. The colors are true to what I saw, I don’t know why they turned out the way they did.
