Jacob van Loon.

Various water-based media pieces representational of research conducted on the Lincoln Highway. This body of paintings combines geometric, architecturally-inspired shapes with organic bursts of color and texture reminiscent of topography and road maps. The Lincoln Highway and cross-country travel was an idea born from the Midwest, and was the first road of it’s kind; birthing the interstate. It changed the way communication and connectivity occurs. Having studied art in a town where the first paved mile of the Lincoln Highway was created in the road’s early stages, its influence on commerce, development and communication have a direct influence on the paintings.
