This is a video I put together of my father’s art work along with a song I wrote from my latest CD “Lead Me Back”. My dad, Seymour Rotman was a Philadelphia painter who specialized in urban landscapes of the older inner city neighborhoods that were often forgotten in the rush to gentrify. Many of these places still exist but too many have gone the way of the bulldozer. He was an unknown but extremely well trained and respected artist (Pennsylvania Academy trained). I just wanted to share his work and keep his memory alive. Hope you like the video, it’s very simple and short. Thanks! – Lucas Rotman‘The Bubble Gum Machine’
