This acrylic painting is highly textured--as much a tactile pleasure as a visual. Many of the bright colors actually physically protrude through the grey, which, though acrylic, was applied with a cement trowel and does indeed look like cracked cement. The grey areas are chunky and raised in places, flat in others. Bright slivers of color can be glimpsed through some of the cracks. The effect is of a diversity of colors--representative of the great diversity of a city's people--pushing up and breaking through the pavement of an urban setting.
