The Monolith

In 2015, construction began right outside my 13th floor studio window in Midtown Manhattan on what would become a forty story building. I was losing a view I loved, but decided to give this unwanted change my full attention, and made drawings and paintings of the whole construction process from the foundation up. By the time it topped out I was enthralled by the subject matter. I realized then how fast the building site was changing, with new shapes, patterns, light effects and human dramas daily. It set my work on a new path. Now I regularly head out to construction sites around the city and make paintings of mountainous architectural landscapes where each time I come back the structures have changed!

This series of paintings focuses on the changes outside my studio window from 2015-2018
