Though he's been making the rounds in the art blogs for awhile, I just had to spotlight Ross Racine's hypnotic and highly detailed drawings of suburban alter-realities. Hand drawn on the computer then printed with an ink-jet, his photo-realistic, aerial photograph-like works are not so far fetched, capturing many of the qualities and absurdities of existing suburbs. To make it even easier for us to imagine them as real developments, Racine has illustrated his fake landscapes at different times of the day and in different weather —The Days and Hours of Brookdale Gardens might as well be seen from a plane.
