After a visit to New York City, I made a series of paintings and drawings on large cities. I wanted to show the complexity of a city, with windows framing people in different buildings, and showing lots of activity.
CITY PARK VIEW depicts one of the earliest stages of my artwork. The original painting was first completed in 1972, and I had used layers of crayon and oil pastels, which I scratched through to create texture and detail. I later further embellished the work, and re-completed the piece in 2011. This digital print is made from a direct image of the enhanced painting.
