Sleepless in Cleveland

Dreamtime inspires artist's illuminating new cityscapes.


Sleep deprivation fueled Victoria Anders’ new metallic photography exhibit, which opens today at the Tower Press Building’s Wooltex Gallery. “I was jolted from sleep with this idea of visualizing Cleveland’s cityscapes through simple lines of composition that show off the industrial strength of our city,” she says. The late-night muse also inspired her to process the photos on aluminum and frame them in metal. @cal body 1:Dozens of images capture Anders’ love affair with Cleveland -- including one that she shot beneath a highway, with downtown’s glorious skyline looming in the distance. “It really represents what I’m trying to achieve aesthetically,” she says. Up next: more work influenced by Anders’ bouts with insomnia. “I am always creating,” she says. “It’s just the way my brain is wired. I couldn’t stop if I tried.” The exhibit runs through November 30 at the Wooltex Gallery, 1900 Superior Avenue. for more information. @cal byline 1:-- By Marge Perko
