Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Found Objects, Fabric, Wax, Wood on Wood.

I live in Brooklyn next to the East River. Every day I take the East River Ferry to and from work in lower Manhattan. I love my commute, being on the water, and seeing the skyline of the city. It looks different every day, every month, every season. This series uses found materials collected in the city. The textures and colors are inspired by what I see on my commute - layers of different materials, cracked concrete, brick, peeling paint, murals, graffiti, wood, glass, steel, rust, water, ice. And of course, the old wooden water of the NYC skyline. There’s so much to see.

Tengai 天外 translates to “horizon, beyond the heavens, farthest regions” in Japanese.

My paintings are on wood and have 3-4" edge. The painting wraps around the edges making it unnecessary to frame & enjoyable from any angle. Each work is authenticated with my "hanko", stamp or Japanese seal.
