Providence Playground - Standard Edition
Part of Providence Playground
“This piece came to be while visiting a friend in Providence after we were exploring the city on our bikes, looking for murals and graffiti. We stumbled across a large abandoned teal-painted building. We hopped the fence and found a way inside. My jaw dropped. It was nothing short of a palace to me. Before the building’s street art “makeover” it had been a nightclub. A nightclub painted in teal and purple…no wonder they went under. Now in its derelict state there were spray-soaked bars, painted stairwells, murals on the dancefloors, a tagged up dock outside extending out over the water, smashed windows, and empty spray cans as far as the eye could see. It was perfect. I was especially excited to be able to photograph and subsequently make paintings of this awesome. So after shooting about 500+ photos, the sun setting, and my friends repeated requests to “wrap it up” on account of his hungry stomach and shivering, we left. This painting and subsequent print is the result of that wonderful adventure.” - Jessica Hess
