The Weight of the Bridge
Select your print and framing options
The Weight of the Bridge and Mercedes Planter are representative of my studio practice and parts of my daily life. In the studio, I research architecture and watercolor. Outside of the studio, I am fortunate to live in the middle of New York City, with examples of historical architecture all around me. I am also able to frequently take trips to Wisconsin to be with my family and recuperate from city life. The Weight of the Bridge is a painting of the Brooklyn Bridge, which I see multiple times a day. I walk under it on my way to and from my studio. I walk over it when I need to feel inspired or just want to shop at Century 21! The Brooklyn Bridge is important to many people; in my mind, it represents the progress and hope that are a part of change. My painting of the Brooklyn Bridge refers to the time of waiting before changes and transitions. The waiting is weighty; it is as massive as the bridge. But once the waiting is over, and change has occurred, everything is different, unexpected and better.
