O.K. Computer (Boy by the Window)


Like Blueboy, this painting was created in my NYU studio, when I had returned to NYC to forge a place for my husband and I to live again. It was a lonely time, and using magazine images to cull feelings and subject matter this work emerged, lost in listening to Radiohead, which felt right at that moment. This work has lived on my walls for years, reminding me of that moment, yearning for a better future and hoping through determination and hard work that both my art and career could fruitfully continue with a belief in self and the romantic longing for better days.
