Train Arrives at Park Street
2013 • 96″ x 48″ • oil and mixed media on red canvas • pine frame

This large mural depicts a tumultuous few seconds at Boston’s Park Street Station, on the Red Line platform, as a subway train arrives. The piece was constructed using a series of techniques; oil paint, ink and pencil on vellum was attached in decoupage to a repurposed red canvas fabric, which was then further detailed with oil paint. The piece is finished with a pine frame.

As in much of my work, there is an aspect of “resolution” to this piece; by changing one’s perspective (especially by moving farther away), elements that seem abstract resolve into representational details.
