The Long Shadow of the Twin Towers

The Long Shadow of the Twin Towers

I wonder how the generation born around 9/11 will feel about the ensuing years, growing up in an era of war, tragedy and terrorism — things I didn’t have to worry about as a kid growing up in the 80s and 90s. This photo is about that question, which is expressed by the young girl on the bottom right corner who looks as if she could have been born around 2001 or thereafter. I thought the people in the photograph (who were old enough to know the tragedy of that day) could be me.

A Weed is Not Simply a Weed

This weed represents the simplest things we ignore and cast as an eyesore despite its beauty. I’ve found that people are often treated the same. So, “a weed is not simply a weed,” etc.

New Prints and They Will Look Exactly Like This

I’m selling prints at LIC Flea and Food in Long Island City tomorrow from 10-6 and every Saturday thereafter until September 28. I’ve hesitated posting anything about this but have been encouraged by my customers’ responses. This is just a small sampling of what will be included but it gives you an idea. Even if you’re not looking for prints, I highly recommend checking this flea market out. I’m earnings have been going into new purchases from there — kinda defeats the point but cool stuff.
