Pastel on Sanded Paper
from the Tribeca Series (from Vivian’s window)
Five years ago I moved to New York City. Immersed suddenly in its over-exuberant sound and color I find myself searching for the quiet places, discovering surprises I adore. In the quiet, new ideas for paintings are starting to emerge.
The Tribeca series was born from the inspiration while standing at a friend’s studio window. She generously offered me the space to work in while she was away and I found myself simultaneously daunted and drawn to the brick and iron, glass and steel, afternoon light and morning mists of the landscape I came to view (and hear) as a surprising sort of harmony. Materials I use in the series are pastels on paper with sanded ground. The gritty surface of the sanded paper and rougher than normal pastel strokes represent the energy of the city set against softer planes of smaller buildings. Together they mirror the vibrant contradiction this city presents, as well as my own emerging feelings about the always new environment.
Tribeca Rooftops is the 8th painting in the series.
