Upstairs, 57th Street

These collages start with a drawing and are layered up with colored papers and gouache.

Upstairs, 57th Street shows my father sitting in a restaurant in New York. I was struck by the quality of the space–up high above the street level in such a dense city, it gave the sense of floating. Here again, trying to strike a balance between covering up the paper with colored pieces, and letting the original drawing show through.
