Brooklyn + Bridge is by the contemporary abstract artist Astor Milan Salcedo, who has held two sell-out exhibitions at Trinity House Paintings previously to this one. The artist uses his own and found photographs in combination with his experimentative painting style to create a collage-like effect. This piece depicts the iconic Brooklyn skyline, from across the water on a sunny day. The photograph is then layered with an abstract, yet carefully placed, sweep of bright colour in oil paint. In this way, Salcedo turns a simple photo into a work of contemporary art.
