Times Square

 

Times Square. My how it's changed over the years. It used to be a hive of crime and sleaze. My father, a NYPD officer, would sternly warn us not to go near there. In present day, it's more of a tourist trap. But still, there's nothing like the way it lights up at night with the multitude of signs and billboards. And there is always something going on. It is the epitome of "the city that never sleeps."

About the NYC Pop Art series

NYC is a unique place. It’s been a place of school, work and play over the years that I have lived just outside this city. At times there have been equal parts intrigue and frustration. I have a host of memories spanning the mundane of walking city blocks to get to a job, circling for lengthy time periods on unfortunate occasions looking for parking, and magical moments of taking in the Christmas festivities of Rockefeller Center. 


Aside from the lights and action of Times Square, the city has a pretty drab color palette. Grey, brown, black, tan… it often does not match the energy the city actually gives off. So I decided to create a Pop Art series of NYC scenes (mostly taken from snapshots over the years) that would depict the city opposite of what you would actually see visually. I replaced the muted colors for a much more vibrant ones. I created buildings and architecture in loose lines as opposed to the precise, exacting lines that actually exist. It’s an alternate reality NYC captured with mood and energy.
