Torn edges of canvas sections stretch 24 1/2 ft across the the Museum’s lobby wall. The tactile sensibility of unexpected materials are posed against the veracity of photo-transferred images, and layered with acrylic and pastel revealing deteriorating remains of abandoned South Bronx waterfront areas, punctuated by multiple power transfer stations, railroads and refuse transfer stations. The torn edges of bifurcated sheets of canvas and shards of information echo a broken South Bronx history, an urban renewal tragedy, in an area that was once once the retreat of choice for fresh air, heath and greenery.  24.5' x 4' • 2017
