This piece shows a person taking in the sights, sounds and smells of Union Square. The farmers market, park, stores, restaurants, street vendors and protests serving as a stage for the intersecting stories of the multitudes.

The artwork of Skip Myers explores the world of dreams, symbolism, mythology, various religious belief systems, the human condition and our shared collective consciousness with all sentient beings. One art critic described him as an oneironaut, or one who explores alternative realities. These works are strongly influenced by personal stories, events from life painted on canvas, filtered through a process of organic abstraction and emotion, and built with vivid color and esoteric symbols.
