This work features two distinct areas within the piece. Toward the top is a drab, yet at the same time, brightly colored skyline. Resembling the picturesque New York sunset. The interlocking cubes are used to portray the tops of buildings, the darker colors represent those deeper in the background. Below the NYC skyline is an accumulation of a variety of dark colors. These interlocking cubes represent the shadows cast by the buildings above onto the streets of NYC. The lack of definition of the cubes within this area is a means to portray the contrast between the glowing skyline and the drab streets below.
Abstract piece involving the used of cubic shapes and colors of orange, red, purple, blue, green and yellow. Non-representational.
Framed - some waving near edges of work.
