Acrylic paint and collage
30" x 40" x 2" unframed
My childhood was informed by spending hours upon hours in the museums and galleries of NYC. My early working life was also in NYC. As I grow older and reflect on my life, I paint the memories of walking downtown to Union Square or walking up Park Avenue to Grand Central Terminal or hanging out in Soho while being young and in the center of the world. These memories are fuzzy and tinged with melancholy. The texture of the collage pieces is reminiscent of the city sidewalks with the subway grates and those old streets where there are still cobblestones.
