|Untitled (Roosevelt Island Series, 2012)|
Roosevelt Island is situated on the East River between Manhattan and Queens and is mostly accessible by cable cars. It is a rather small, mostly residential island and really not too attractive at all. Still, in November 2012 it proved to be one of the last areas of New York I hadn't explored.
I vaguely remembered that I had shot shot some sort of iron structure against a cloudless sky and that there might actually be birds in it somewhere. So I pulled the image and immediately knew I had to include it in this show. It's got just the right amount of grit and just enough birds to qualify for the show. Love it.
Put A Bird On It will run through May, 2014 with an opening reception on May 3, 2014 at the Blu Moon Gallery, 3444 Main Hwy, #7, Coconut Grove, Florida 33133. The promo and photo of Untitled (Birds on a Wire) is shown below.
