Urban shadow worlds and perspectives saturated with gold are being created in the »New York City« series. Night versus day in timeless spaces. Cityscape not landscape. These alienated parallel universes devoid of organics, dissolving entirely into line, perspective, and material structure, have a dreamlike subtility and their very own optical tectonics. Levels shift, oscillate, quietly secret windows are being opened to enigmatic dimensions.
