Gotham

2016
The prints, sculptures, and animated videos which make up the series Gotham re-imagine 19th century New York facades as organic material, like a type of skin. Specifically the works draw on the original Beaux Art architecture of The Ansonia, The Dorilton and The Prasada, which were some of the first luxury apartment buildings to be constructed in New York. In the context of the rapid re-development of the Manhattan skyline by a new era of wealth, the works create a surreal meditation on power and affluence while examining the blurry divide between the natural and artificial.
