I recently began a series of drawings for a new piece entitled "The Glory of Commerce", an homage to the sculpture of the same name by Jules-Felix Coutan. The 50' x 60' limestone sculpture sits above Grand Central Terminal and is one of my favorite works of art in NYC. I am very interested how the friction between creativity and capitalism has shaped culture throughout history, especially in modern-day New York. "The Glory of Commerce" has always represented the intersection of creativity and finance; expression and necessity. For that reason it serves as a fitting jumping off point to share my experience of living and working in modern day New York.
