Industrial Abstracts - Modern Work Recalling New York's History

Domino - Stacks, 96 x 30" (4 panels), Silkscreen, Spray Paint and Acrylic on Wood Panel, 2016

Silkscreen and mixed media artist, Jake Wallace creates vibrant and energetic works which race to document the city's history before our ever changing urban landscape shifts yet again. For better or worse, many of our city's eponymous sites find their tenure coming to an end as new high rises glide in to take their place continuing to remind us that New York City fears not evolution.

In Jake’s latest body of work, inspired by the Domino Factory and Greenpoint Terminal buildings in Brooklyn, NY, he has incorporated a layering of various mediums including his own photography, screen printing, and painting, and a collage of new photos, textures and typography to create images with more depth and visual interest.

Jake spends time at these sites studying their structure through various vantage points. His astute eye dramatically captures the deep perspective of these vast buildings accentuating their imposing scale.

"It’s amazing to think that when my grandfather came to Brooklyn in the early 1900’s he looked upon many of the same buildings that we see today and it’s sad to see many of the great ones disappear forever."

Jake is a native New Yorker, artist, designer, photographer and dad. He sees beauty where many others see decay and has been shooting street textures and industrial architecture for over a decade.

Series 02, Bridge20 x 24", Silkscreen, Spray Paint and Acrylic on Wood Panel, 2016

Jake’s work combines all of his passions to tell the unique and powerful story of industrial relics. He weaves together his dedication to good design and typography, love of painting and printmaking, and eye for photography to amplify his deep historical interest in the disappearing industrial landscape of New York City.
