Chrysler Building Spire and McDonald's Graphic Red Sign,

$ 6,500
  • Description
    For 53 years, Mithcell Funk has been photographing the art deco beauty of the Chrysler Building. In this work, Funk frames the iconic spire between two other rectilinear shapes. On the left, there is a typical monochromatic glass skyscraper. On the right looms the left side of a Mcdonald's sign. It's composed of a flat fire engine red color with a yellow stripe which seems to echo the shape of the Chrysler spire. The pictorial space of the sign appears as large as the glass skyscraper. Funk accomplishes that with camera angle, depth of field, and overall artistic savvy. Mitchell Funk’s investigation into the essential nature of color photography’s potential is on full display in this radical statement of color, shape, and perspective.
    Signed and dated on the lower right and numbered lower right, 3/15 Printed later, other sizes available, unframed - Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art paper.
