ARTIST STATEMENT: I have always been inspired by birds flying freely. While I have lived in New York City (with its infamous pigeons) for my entire life, my home in Brooklyn offers a slice of nature rarely found in an urban environment. The windows of my studio provide a panoramic view of Prospect Park and its lake unsullied by buildings and the other trappings of city life. As would be expected, on weekends during the warmer months, the park is overrun with city dwellers trying to get away from the hassle of the city. But most of the time, it is quiet and fairly empty. Prospect Park with its dense central woodlands and 60 acre lake is a friendly home to over 200 species of native and migratory birds. In the warmer months, the lake is home to swans, geese and ducks but it is in the winter that the view from my studio comes into its glory. The leaves fall giving me a clear view onto the lake. The sun shifts along the horizon and each day I see the varied colors of the sunset twice once in the sky and once on the lake. As it gets colder, sea gulls take refuge from the harshness of the sea shore and gather on the partially frozen lake. Given some unknown source of alarm, hundreds take to flight in unison. Flexing their wings in broad strokes then gliding from one end of the lake to the other. Between the birds and colorful sunsets, I have visions of beauty which I like to translate for others to enjoy in this less than peaceful world.
