Piece description from the artist
Part of the "Twisted Cities" series- this is one of (5) pieces created to show Manhattan. Five different views of Manhattan are included in this series and they were "twisted" in my drawing, meaning that not all of them are situated on the page with North being at the top. Done in a muted grey color palette, the series was based on my experience traveling to New York during winter, when the snow had melted into a frozen slush and the gravel and soot had mixed in with the snow to make everything appear as though it was covered in a grey wash. I felt that it was representational of that period in late winter when everyone is eagerly awaiting the spring sun.
