Tracing Utopia: My Street, My Office

Photos below of the recent drawing on the left and right side walls of my office space on Broadway in Manhattan. The dissolving, almost melting images represent the street in Brooklyn where I live. The outside of my neighborhood comes inside, inviting and invading into the sterile yellow office space. Images of urban life such as piles of trash awaiting pick up, street lights, safety cones are broken into liquid like shapes and lines. The automobile and motorcycle, both strong symbols of masculinity and achievement are shown equally as broken.
