Pearl Street to Hall Street

This body of work is based on a year of close observation of the sidewalks during my walks between my apartment and studio in Brooklyn. Over time, these sidewalks became, to me, a working canvas that quietly reflected a democratic representation of the city around it: from private love notes to color coded utility markings, water stains and spilled coffee to feces (human and animal) and the cracks from moving earth and aging materials. None of my paintings are of sidewalks that actually existed; they are, instead, composed from a library of images I collected on my walks. Re-presenting this surface in my own compositions was my way of making poetry out of the language the sidewalks offered to me.
