Oil painting "Steel Mesh Landscape - Foreground" by Hunter Madsen

"Steel Mesh Landscape - Foreground"

 
  

In this silvery treatment of an industrial landscape, it is the standing coils of steel mesh in the foreground that please our eyes and command our attention, in part because the image flattens the range of hues and values in ways that make the background - that is, the warehouse wall at the rear - less interesting.
