2015, Century plate lithography prints, 24'' by 17''
The interaction between people and their city spaces is important to me. When I create installations and prints, I meditate on the relationship between architectural form and the communities that reside within them I wonder, how do these spaces impact their people and how do these communities inspire the form of their cities?
These prints introduce people as compositional form as I notice the parallel lines of people on the escalators in Penn Station in NYC. The metro stations are focal to NYC and depend on the concordance of their structure and commuters. In Penn Station I observe people ascend and descend the escalators systematically and stare at the holding pens as they wait for their train's track number to be announced before rushing systematically to their appropriate platforms.
I notice people within their contextual spaces, in Penn Station or in their more unusual intersections around the metro stations such as Kingston Ave Station in Crown Hts. Within these prints, I accentuate lines that never depart from their parallel composition.
