Grand Central Station is part commuter nexus and part wonder; the sheer scale of the arched and painted ceiling of the main terminal, the intentional, architectural symmetries and the symmetrical breaks, the dark, commuter train tunnels and descending, subway staircases, the echoing arrival and departure pronouncements, the exotic aromas from the many restaurants and bakeries.

City Symmetry

City Symmetry

The award winning “City Symmetry Series” continues my exploration of abstract forms in everyday life. In particular, I believe that symmetries contain a kind of magic, and that broken symmetries are the stuff of life itself. To give visual form to this belief, I photograph office buildings, churches, parks, pavement, trees, sculptures, stairways – most of them in New York City – and place them into mirrored relationships, revealing underlying forces and relationships otherwise invisible to our everyday vision.

[Mixed Media]

The artist is drawing not just from his command of the medium, but from the struggle to control his tools, a willingness to combat oppression and violence with laughter.
