NIAGARA

Roebling Hall, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, 2005
These paintings are set at Niagara Falls, and the trace of Hudson River School wistfulness and grandeur that moves through them is intensified by a jaundiced neon palette and the decision to place power towers and electrical wires on a par with the Horseshoe Falls and the Maid of the Mist. These paintings contemplate nature as it is seen through the obstructions of industry, pollution, and kitschy tourism.
