I enjoyed the spontaneity of the figures in the Martin Lewis print “Chance Meeting,” and their movement against the city structures. The feeling of a past era is very appealing. In my woodcut, “In Passing,” I recall the building in Brooklyn NY that I grew up in and the delight in imagining a meeting with someone from that time. The anonymity the city imposes makes personal contact all the more exciting. I returned last summer to see my old neighborhood. The ghosts of the past still linger and the expectations still exist.
