Latterday Nighthawks

14"x 24  Acrylic over Illustration board. West Village, Summer 2017

In New York, as in so many other cities, gentrification has meant displacement and visually marked the cityscape. Here, an illuminated coffee shop welcomes colorful characters. Just next door, however, an abandoned storefront implies another story and imparts to the viewer a sense of loss in contrast to the hyper-branded, impersonal, and generic spaces that both claim place and dis-place.
