Onward and Upward
Onward and Upward measures 14×44 feet. It was commissioned by Evo Rock and Fitness in Louisville, Colorado in 2017, incorporating the colors of the building’s interior. Painted with acrylic and latex on the wall, the image reads like a story from left to right. Beginning with geometric lines and shapes, it transforms into a hilly landscape with jutting mountains. A rickety stairwell unfolds up the wall, and nearing the corner a precarious ladder intertwines with more complex overlapping angles and shapes. On the other facing wall, the linear framework becomes a climbing wall, with colored holds that morph into birds flying away.
