Mixed media box entitled
Bridge to Manhattan

This mixed media box contains, at the edges, fragments of a photograph of the Queensboro Bridge, which connects the Borough of Queens to the Borough of Manhattan.  This was a bridge I drove over with my parents as a child very often, when we visited my grandparents on weekends, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.  The central image is a manhole cover on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, perhaps on a street we drove through to get to my grandparents' apartment.  The photographs of the Bridge are collaged onto balsa wood blocks, which are glued to the edges of the box to give the main background image more depth.   The strong wavy white lines are carved into a white clay background.

Materials: 

Wooden box, balsa wood blocks, photograph fragments, photograph, clay, acrylic paint, oil stick.
