The haunting urban landscapes of Paul Rouphail


A Tall Building In An American City. oil. 54 x 54 in. 2012_II

Pittsburgh-based artist, Paul Rouphail, paints incredibly beautiful urban landscapes. The first thing I noticed when first looking at his work however, is the complete emptiness of these landscapes. Without people or activity, these pretty normal landscapes take on a completely different tone.

“The city’s rolling hills and expansive vistas allow for light to pierce the architectural fabric in such a way that the city, as a landscape, is in a constant state of flux; light is always shifting, and the possibilities for discovery are ever more present.”
