New Temporary Mural in Chinatown
SAN FRANCISCO - On view for one year, Sight Plan is a 150-foot mural by Maria Park for the construction fence in front of the new Chinatown Central Subway Station on Stockton Street at Washington.
The mural features images of sky and clouds that were inspired by and painted from 150 photographs taken by the artist over the last 10 years. Park painted the images on clear plexiglass and then scanned them to create an effect that encourages the viewer to speculate whether the image is a photograph, painting or graphic print. According to the artist, this affect "...can be nice in slowing down the speed in which an artwork is viewed or consumed."
