When I walk around the city at night I sometimes feel as if I’m wandering through a gargantuan interactive light sculpture. But one that is more interesting and mysterious to me precisely because the effect is not the consequence of a grand design, but of something more haphazard and random: The aggregate of many individual efforts, mostly independent of each other, which coincidently, or not, adds up to a spectacular whole.

To date, I don’t have enough paintings in my nightscape series for a solo show. However, I have completed a few that I am pleased enough with to have had included in an occasional group show. One such takes place July 9 - August 25, 2015 at the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor. I gather viewing is by invitation only, though. Apparently security won’t let anyone into the building unless they have their name listed-----and then only with a photo ID. If you are interested in seeing the exhibition, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll see what I can do. You could also try contacting the Art Students League of New York, since it is their show: All the participating artists are either students or members of the League. Or, you could wait until I have my solo nightscape show----but you’ll have to wait at least another year for that!
