Kosciuszko Bridge
Brooklyn, NY
April 2009-Present
This series is painted entirely from the vantage point of one street corner, underneath the Brooklyn side of the Kosciuszko Bridge, which is the section of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway that spans the Newtown Creek. It's literally the very end of Brooklyn. The sidewalks gradually disintegrate into dirt and dust, much the same way that a paved rural road sometimes does. There's a garbage dump, trucking, fabrication, and a whole bunch of other businesses down there, and the guys who operate the forklifts come over and talk about the paintings, and the bridge. The Kosciusko bridge is scheduled to come down sometime in 2012, at which point it will be gradually replaced with another bridge, to be built alongside it.
