I created these pieces for the main lobby of the Wyckoff Height's Medical Center in Brooklyn. They represent a celebration of life. I used hand cut origami paper and foil paper layered together like a collage assembled on top of canvas. The two larger works are 72" x 72" and the smaller works are 36" x 36"
I wanted to create something beautiful but not over the top for the lobby. Since it's a waiting area I wanted to make something that could draw a viewer in for a longer period of time, but also not be demanding of a patient's attention since I want to remain respectful to the visitors.
I was put in touch with the Wyckoff Height's Medical Center by the Bushwick City Councilman. I then talked with the VP and CEO of the hospital to create designs that were suitable for the space.
Blessed to have this opportunity! Hope this pieces impact people positively. They impacted me in an inspiring and healing way while creating them.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
