New York City is a visual wonderland of curious and stimulating patterns, textures, and shapes. Living here for the past two years, I have immersed myself in the fast paced lifestyle that New Yorkers often embrace. Unfortunately, I found myself taking for granted the many aspects of New York City’s beauty as I rushed through it. This art piece aims to combat these tendencies, and encourages the viewer to take time to appreciate the architectural beauty that surrounds us. By utilizing the natural space and textures that buildings create together—and transforming it into something new—each scene challenges the viewer to see their surroundings in a new, multidimensional way.
