NY Extra Sharp: At Home (2020)
digital photograph, relief print on Arches paper, found text
9 x 6 in.

Wherever I live, New York is home to me. I represent the fifth generation of New Yorkers in my family. I thrive on the city’s energy and possibilities when I can be there, and I’m inspired by it when I’m away. The anxiety and stress of New York as a pandemic epicenter is difficult for me to process, and I am concerned daily for friends who live there. I have saved the NEW YORK EXTRA SHARP found text for a while; collaging it now with my harbor photographs expresses my love for the city. I hope it, and all our communities, will soon be healthy, accessible, and productive environments again.
