03:45. NEW YORK as THEME PARK (4k resolution is also available):
This is New York, the way you always wanted it to be. This series happened as a result of some unexpected, dissipation of energy, on paper.
It started as 35mm still film images.
The beginning stages were embellished, with art materials. Somehow, I envisioned what the results would be before the works were completed, specifically: while I was in the process of constructing them.
This interpretation of the urban landscape was created to make others feel more alive, using my personal mind associations of my feelings about being here.
Space, and place. Childhood memories of theme parks (ie.: Disney World, Man and His World, and various Amusement Parks).
Original (finished) artworks: on paper: each one is 20.25x16.25 inches in size.
Special thanks to GuruDev (JGD), Robert, Peter H., Peter, Arne, Charlelie, SVA, and Art Students League.
