The Seepage of Proserpine

Ceiling and Wall Installation
Lehman College Art Gallery
Bronx, New York

I was invited by Karin Bravin of BravinLee Programs to create a work for a group exhibition she was curating at the Lehman College of Art Gallery in the Bronx, New York. The ceiling of the space were about thirty feet high. Using a single lift I began to install the work from the cement ceiling. Like may of my works, I draw inspiration from poetry. I wanted to create a work with the flow and sensibilities of a poem. While I always do site visits and sketches ahead of time, the work and the artist (myself) are continually responding to the space, its constraints and possibilities.
