Twenty-four in New York is an outsider’s tour of New York City; a sort of time capsule that immortalizes 24 seemingly anonymous locations, serving 24 different experiences, throughout a 24-hour period. Twenty-four in New York is more than a collection of paintings, street ephemera, videos and written words; it is a record of a day in the life of a city. When viewing these works, you are encouraged to move beyond the constraints of the location in which you are standing and see the paintings from the perspective of the hour of day that they portray. Imagine the smell, sound and energy at the particular time that the areas are illustrated. Imagine these works as dioramas. See yourself standing at the locations. Immerse yourself in that experience.
