Lexington and 53rd Street

The book New York: Finger Paintings by Jorge Colombo compiles the early days of my working on an iPhone touch screen, going back to 2009. It was thrilling to approach landscape painting with a technique so new that everything I had done before had to be re-learned. Using the familiar cast of NYC's urban movie, architectural stars like the Chrysler Building; character actors like water towers or food carts brought a feeling of rediscovery to each new vista. Lexington and 53rd Street and Prince and Lafayette display some of my favorite lighting schemes of New York. The constellation of lights that pierces the blackness of the night leaves us with the task of inventing the shape of buildings we don't actually see. And the majestic sunsets' invisible grips that hang above New Jersey each afternoon transform the east-west canyons into a play of silhouettes.
