For over a decade Patricia Araujo has painted San Francisco's central city architecture. While she lived in the area, she was enchanted by its rich architectural history and the decayed beauty of many buildings that remain, and she continues to paint both iconic city landmarks and abandoned downtown buildings, as an elegy to San Francisco's architectural past. Since 2008 she has also devoted herself to a new body of work, Tomorrowland Today, featured in this monograph.

"There is an enormous sweetness in the atmosphere of these paintings. They are about fantasies made real, here in the United States and elsewhere. In Tomorrowland Today, structures thousands of miles apart come together in the artist's work as expressions of love for her father and for the expressive power of architecture."

“This series of paintings by Patricia Araujo is not a realistic depiction of any one Tomorrowland at any single point in time. It is, collectively, an artist’s fantasy, like a theme and variations in music, about the imaginative act involved in designing a representation of the future, seeing it built, seeing it get older. It unobtrusively reminds us that looking forward and looking back are closely connected.” (From the foreword by Jerome Tarshis, Art Critic).

Jerome Tarshis has written about art for Art in America, House and Garden, Vogue, Travel and Leisure, The Christian Science Motion, and many other publications. He lives in San Francisco.
