Window drawing, chashama 1351, NYC
Vinyl on window
Vinyl tape on glass.

This piece was installed at chashama's 1351 window in Harlem. This drawing was particularly enjoyable to install because the presence of art is almost non-existent in this neighborhood. Passersby regularly stopped to watch my progress, which gave the installation the feeling of a performance. The finished piece inspired subsequent work in a variety of materials from painting to sculpture.

I continue to use colored electrical (vinyl) tape for my drawing material. I like using this utilitarian tape which can be purchased at any Home Depot. At the end of the exhibition, I remove and discard the tape.
