Photographic Detail of Artwork by Robert Vicknair

Collection

This drawing by Robert Vicknair features a silhouette of musician Kathleen Kraus holding a drill and a go cup. Vicknair created the artwork fron an image taken at the first NEIGHBORHOODS art installation, which was held Kathleen\'s house in Holy Cross in January 2006.\r\n These drawings on asphalt felt were part of NEIGHBORHOODS: 2426 BRADISH PLACE, a site-specific art installation held on May 19, 2007. \r\n From the artist\'s comments: \"The stark figure/ground compositions were used to create iconic scenes of residents and buildings in each neighborhood. Also,due to the lack of electricity at two sites,high-contrast imagery was necessary.\"\r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n\r\n
