2017

My recent paintings are mostly based on New York public structures (tunnels, bridges, subways, museums) that support life in the city, but the paintings also include works that are structures from elsewhere,  an apse of the Siena cathedral, a deserted Detroit theater, a rainforest in Trinidad. In each painting there is water - sometimes torrents of water, sometimes a multitude of drops —in an onrushing assault or an insidious erosion or a burgeoning wave - the lifeblood of the planet but also the means of  a destructive climate threatening to inundate the vital structures and obliterate the common good.

All paintings, unless otherwise noted, are watercolor, gouache, ink and acrylic on gessoed wooden panel, 18x24”.
