Artist Statement

NEW YORK CITY THEATER DISTRICT

Bold and brassy with billboards competing for our attention. Old shows and new productions fighting for space . Reviews! Its all about those reviews —which can put actors in the bread line or make super stars overnight.  Off Broadway shows can bring out the best in American theater or turn fans into animals. One of the most repulsive scenes I can recall is observing a group of star struck women in a frenzy—circling a limo where Richard Burton  waited for wife Liz Taylor by the stage door. As she ran to her limo, it was not unlike watching animal kingdom . The women grabbed at Liz and one ripped a hank of hair from her scalp. Her limo driver pulled her into the vehicle and laid rubber in the escape. Fans often feel the stars belong to them and stop at nothing for a souvenir. One took John Lennon’s life as a way to express his obsession over the Beetles star.

In my recent oil painting above depicting some of New York Cities architecture, I have created impressions of billboards advertising shows. Lennon, Wicked, Phantom, Sex And The City, etc. Paintings like these record history of life in the colorful bold and brassy theater district.
