Observing construction sites in Manhattan, I interpret them in a broader context of resurrection and transformation. I am interested in the surface aspect of architecture as a reflection of the times, and in exposing inaccessible views and things that are not ordinarily considered beautiful. The grandeur of construction is reduced to frames showing the materials and process. Revealing the craft of building is parallel to the way my brushstrokes reveal the craft of painting.
