Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor I
was am image based on a cathedral that I encountered in Barcelona, whose Spanish title translates to "The Temple of The Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ." This cathedral is used in many of my architectural paintings. Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor I
was the first of my paintings to display architecture. I chose to zoom into a portion of the enclosed spiral stairway and conjoining window. The building's shapes are accentuated by the solid black paint and focus on line, creating an abstracted realism.
