W Train

18”x 60”  Acrylic, collage over Illustration board. W Train Manhattan Bound, Winter 2016

The train depicts an ordinary scene in New York City life: people waiting to get on the train while others rush out. On a backdrop of collaged newspaper, colorful, personified animals show the vibrancy of city life, on the one hand, and, on the other, point toward a darker reality, namely, that of life against a backdrop of intense mediatization.
