NYC; Press Pause

NYC streets, neighborhoods, the architecture and the different times of day are a powerful muse. This piece was done after everything first got shutdown during the pandemic. My style is an abstract realism approach incorporating distant somewhat ‘ravaged’ landscapes. I use a mix of street aesthetics and in this instance muted colors to create a calm at sunrise energy focusing on light, shadows, abstractions and shapes. In this cityscape rendering, there are intentional abstractions and distortions utilizing color to evoke emotion. There is tension that is communicated through the use of palette knives, working quickly, in multiple layers as well as a spontaneity and charged energy to my work.
