The place we never quite get to, only in our imagination from books and films. I have been to NYC more times than I can remember, had a studio and exhibited, lived there for months at a time, fell in love, back in the 80’s, been south as far as Washington DC and up to Boston, even spent a couple of weeks in LA and SanFrancisco. But America I do not know…..and perhaps I am more familiar with Amerika on my mind.
This work was made back then, very curvy, playing with the neo geo of the times, more curves than was allowed in strictly modernism revisited.
