Anne Fracassa is a Detroit resident whose drawings and paintings reflect her love of Detroit and its rich history. The city is a source of endless and fascinating subject matter. From humble frame homes crowded into old neighborhoods to elegant Victorian mansions on broad boulevards, Detroit’s architecture is a reminder of its rich social history. Utility poles and water towers, railroad crossing signals, billboards, bridges and massive old buildings against atmospheric skies are powerful abstract shapes repeated in endless variations and patterns. Such images are also poignant reminders that the city’s “renaissance” is likely to bring about the disappearance of many of these beautiful forms.
