Thomas Roese reframes the industrial architecture of Cleveland into visually appealing plays of pattern, space, and line. His compositions diverge from more familiar illustrations of the Terminal Tower, placing the Cleveland landmark in compelling and surprising dialogue with its architectural surroundings. Drawing is particularly central to Roese’s practice, as he states: “The grit of my hometown, Cleveland, flows from the gritty, graphite pencil.” This graphic sensibility is translated into his printmaking, through which he illuminates the elemental qualities of buildings.
