Sugar Mill Remains, 36" x 48"

Regular price

All that is standing in good condition at the Great Western Sugar Mill in Longmont, Colorado is this set of concrete silos and water tower.  I set out to photograph the mill itself but it had fallen in grave disrepair due to time, weather, fires and vandals.  Though I was disappointed to not be able to capture the mill itself, I was happy to see the silos and water tower in pretty good condition and on their own, are a common sight in rural/Eastern Colorado.  This mixed media piece incorporates my photography with several layers of acrylic paint and recycled and vintage papers to give this rural  yet industrial piece a modern, contemporary feel.
