'Redefinedery' is now showing at the Georgia Galleria in Vallejo. It shows the refinery at night, and how I have redefined it in my mind. When I was young in Martinez, I would often look at the refineries lit up at night. I thought they looked like fairy castles. As I grew up, I learned that they are not fairy. They serve a purpose, but can pollute our air and water if not under proper care. So, it is a lesson learned early, that all things have good and bad built into them. This piece is a digitized picture that I put enlarged into two frames so that it looks like you are observing through a dirty window. It has aspects of an abstract object but reflects some realism.
