Queensboro Bridge

2009, found papers, 30" x 42"

Queens view, looking west and north. This landlocked version represents how many New Yorkers typically experience the bridge – a structure that looms over a streetscape. It's honest and a bit brusque, but offers its own lyrical beauty, an heroic vertical view with a looming presence that emphasizes bridge's size and power. Street below with view of traffic, trees, traffic lights and street lamps provide urban context. Created for the New York Bridge Centennial Commission.

The Four Seasons

(Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall)

2006-2007, found papers, each 44" x 32"

Each collage consists of 54 four-inch squares separated by a quarter-inch space and laid out in a nine-by-six grid. Some of these squares contain hundreds of bits of paper, others just a single piece of color. The collages cultivate both the cliché and power of the four seasons concept, which, while facile, nonetheless offers a potent visual metaphor and an intrinsically compelling story.
