Downtown, Oranjested, Aruba

Painting Description

Unfortunately, much of the old Dutch-style architecture is vanishing from the heart of this Caribbean capital. I am strongly opposed to the trend of placeless architecture. A sense of place, a context, or a reference to local history creates a particularness that keeps urbanscapes from looking the same. I think Cleveland should look different than London or Marseille. In a quickly changing society, distinctive architecture helps to ground us.
