Artist Statement: New Yorkers use the city’s parks for many things to suit their needs. A park is used as a meeting place, a stage, a soap box to state your opinion, a bike path, a place to rest, a gathering place to attract a crowd, or a place to read alone while still being surrounded by people. I believe the public spaces in New York bring strangers together in order to foster interaction. My piano depicts the people in the park before they meet, before they are affected by the unexpected, before they change their plans on a whim and begin to interact with one another. The colorful scenes on my piano often cross over an edge to remind the viewer to “see all sides.” The point of view of each park-goer is different, much like in reality. There are stairs in each background to reinforce the various points of view and to lead the viewers eye in the direction of the other people.
