Sunrise in the Sunset (26-1/2″ x 38-1/2″)

Photograph by Jon Hope

One of my favorite pictures of San Francisco is Jon Hope’s striking aerial photograph “Sunrise in the Sunset.” The image simultaneously captures the uniformity and the diversity of the rows and rows of houses in the western part of the city (in this view, from 42nd to 47th Streets between Quintara and Pacheco). While usually I don’t match the pattern to specific parts of the image, in this case I couldn’t resist the urge to give each individual house its own component!

Sunrise in the Sunset Tetraptych (4 x 32″ x 18″) (sold)

I’ve also done a 4-panel “tetraptych” treatment of this piece, taking overlapping thirds of the image.  The panels are mounted in successive walls in an office in downtown San Francisco, as shown in the panoramic shot.

San Francisco Night (36″ x 50″ and 42″ x 58″) (sold)

Photograph by Elizabeth Carmel

A striking photograph by Elizabeth Carmel shows the city of San Francisco lit up on a clear night during the holiday season. From the bottom to the top, the components of the Xtra-Dimensions piece get narrower and taller, like the buildings from the foreground to the background, and are mounted in a pattern that aligns with Market Street and mimics the curves of the Bay Bridge.

Golden Gate Bridge (23″ x 38″)

Photography by Jeff Blaney

For this colorful photograph my friend Jeff took of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Marin Headlands, I tried an “enhanced perspective” pattern that radiates from the convergence point (outside the image) and expands into the foreground.

Bahnhof Basel (20″ x 34″) (sold)

Photograph by Jeff Blaney

My friend Jeff also captured this striking image of a platform in the Basel train station.  I tried to emphasize the perspective and sense of movement with a pattern that takes advantage of the symmetry of the image.  The depth is further enhanced by a slight fold in the acrylic support.
