Japanese bamboo paper, wool, copper, cotton twine and other materials
This was a piece I had in the back of my mind ever since the biggest winter
storm on record in nyc .
There is a magical
feeling when a city of 8 million comes to a stand still. Cars stopped
running and everything
garbage bags to parked cars were blanketed in
pure white snow. The contrast in noise and the usual vibrant colors of
the city was breathtaking. The day after the storm, I came across a photo on the cover of the
New York Times that somehow got etched in my mind.
The duo-tone strips of white bamboo paper used in the background are an homage to my favorite artist of all times, Agnes Martin. The purity and honesty of her life, which she generously shared with the world through her paintings and writings, embody what I consider something that is close to perfection as an artist.
