Finally back in the studio after 3 weeks away, picking up on a piece I was working on before I left for Costa Rica. The piece was originally black and white but I was in the mood for some more color.
Times have been different as of late but here’s some light in the dark. About 3 weeks ago I was in Costa Rica on the coast in a little beach town called Samara. It was dusty and hot but we were fortunate enough to view some local art and be enthralled by the beautiful colors the country has to offer. I was drawn to the pure blues that surrounded me. From the blue walls in the heath food store to the waves crashing on the shores of the beaches I walked.
Currently coming up with ideas for work to be shown towards the end of the year. Using different medias, memories of the past in New York City come to mind. I have always been intrigued by the lives of others in the city and how they made the best of their circumstances. Both my father and grandmother lived in tenement buildings, my father on the lower East Side and my grandmother in Brooklyn. Each of them was an immigrant hoping to make a better life for themselves in NYC.
I love the feel of this piece. Acrylic paint and collage.
