Historical Context:
"Grand Rapids was, and is, a city of architectural treasures. As seen through [my paintings,] the city takes on a haunting, mystical quality that induces an appreciation and nostalgia for an earlier era. It also inspires a passion for preserving the past amidst the present-day desire to erect monolithic structures of modernity." - Ken Cooper
