One of the most historic vintage mills in New England, the Ponemah Mills in Taftville, CT was at its time in the 1860s, the largest textile mill in the world. It held thousands of looms, employed thousands of workers, many of them European immigrants and was an iconic industrial site in the site. It operated for nearly 100 years then lay dormant for quite some time until it was selected for a massive adaptive reuse project to turn the former factory into hundreds of affordable housing units. This image is from the side of the mill and only shows a tiny sliver of a truly massive mill.
This mixed media painting is layered with my photography of the building, vintage documents, acrylic paints and oil pastels to create a unique, vintage inspired piece of industrial art. This is the one-of-a kind original, not a reproduction.
