Perhaps you'll fall in love with the city as I did.
Tribeca Alley is an ink drawing I made when I was in grad school at the New York Academy of Art. It was a wonderful time in my life, I had left a career of 18 years to pursue art full time. I would walk down this alley often at lunchtime on my way to buy supplies at Pearl Paint. As I entered the Alley and made my way down the cobble stone street, sandwiched between old rusty fire escapes, the noise of the city quietened. It felt like I had stepped back in time to experience a glimpse of what New York had been like a century earlier.
Soho Evening Stroll
There’s something so romantic and poetic about a nocturnal scene of New York, and late night walks home from the studio didn’t disappoint.
Evening Stroll in Soho, captures an elderly couple heading home after dinner, as they walk past a 24 hr parking garage. The light is the narrator, revealing only the essential elements of the composition and story. Leaving the viewer to imagine in the rest.
Morning Coffee on Broadway
This graphic composition captures the silhouette of a coffee cart and customers under a tunnel created by scaffolding. A familiar morning routine, and pitstop as commuters exit the subway or enter tall office buildings.
For years I would visit at the same cart, smile and greet the owner, as he handed me my coffee, just as I liked it. We’d usually engage in a little banter then I’d be on my way. If I was running late, and he was packing up, he would load me up with left over donuts that I’d share amongst co-workers. There was no point in refusing, he was insistent and persistent.
Rain on Canal Street
On a rainy evening walk home from the studio. This corner of Canal Street and Avenue of the Americas captures the rain in a backlit sky and the reflections on the wet road.
The staggered traffic lights, and lit billboards above the bodega makes for a moody abstract composition of the city.
Crossing Canal Street
Crossing Canal Street captures the sparkle of night lights and reflections of the city as the rain falls.
In the evening on my way home the mood would be peaceful and quiet except for a chorus of raindrops and footsteps. Accompanied by the occasional sound of tires on the wet road as a taxi rode by.
Earlier in the day this corner of the city would have be bustling with New Yorkers and tourists The chatter of conversation punctuated by honking horns as the traffic lights changed.
