Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: Greatly influenced by pop art and photorealism, my subjects include portraits, still lifes and cityscapes. My current project is “Coney Island and the Last Days of Astroland.” Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York has been a popular resort/amusement area since before the turn of the 20th century. Astroland amusement park opened in 1962, and was part of the Coney Island landscape for over 40 years. Like so many others, I have fond memories of that area. When it was announced that Astroland would be closing, I decided to start a series of paintings depicting Coney Island and Astroland in its final days.
