On the Midway
On the Midway
Liz Chalfin Florence MA 2014 etching 11 x 15” In “Night Shadows” Edward Hopper depicts a lone figure walking an empty city street with the stark light of a street lamp casting a long shadow before him. The composition evokes feelings of isolation and loneliness within a sleeping metropolis. In “On the Midway” I was inspired to evoke similar feelings. This etching depicts a carnival midway at the county fair late at night. Four figures cut a diagonal path past the backlit games. The figures each occupy their own space, lost in their own thoughts. The fair is asleep, as is Hopper’s city.
