STARK CITY

In this recent series, the city is an empty stage made of subway platforms, barriers, and fences that allude to gentrification and isolation. Recognizable stops along the J train mark the intersection of clashing cultures, from Classical architecture and suffocating bell jars to White Castle fast food and toxic industry. Text is layered on the walls of the city, embedding its socio-conflicts. Geometric compositions depict movement and stillness with fast tracks and ever-waiting figures.
