Feathered Moon

Sheri L. Wright


Artist Statement

To me, a boxcar abandoned in Louisville, Kentucky, is more than the decay of usefulness, metal, and paint. Within the corrosion of care and rust, I saw what appeared like a symbol from a very old tradition, one forgotten amid the flash of our times. I felt as if I had uncovered something hidden, that in the removal of temporary conveniences, I was taken back to something more lasting.

My only technique in this piece was to search for an image that stood out from the chaos of decayed metal and paint. Other than that, I did very little to alter the result besides to clean up any dust, and slightly increase focus, contrast, and color.
