Manhattan, it's difficult to describe my feelings about you.
I love you. You hold so many of God's children. You hold excitement, wonder, hopes, dreams, and beauty. You hold the new, the innovative, the supported, the dreamer, and the daring.
You also hold the lost, the sorrowful, the trapped, the abused, the crushed, the suffering, the cold, the isolated, and the homeless.
It's amazing how one can feel so surrounded by people, and so isolated at the same time in a city like this.
But my soul soars in this place. Every time the plane touches down, my body gets an electric shock that travels from my feet to my head. "THIS IS IT!!!" It shouts. "You're here!" I wonder if my ancestors - traveling from Germany, France, England, London, etc. - felt the same way. I wonder if their hearts soared, even amidst the trepedation of being somewhere new, with the hope of good to come.
This is it. Last night in my favorite city. Home tomorrow to my babies, and to my studio.
Thank you to Glen Nelson and Warren Winegar @warrenwinegar for being my mentors this week.
Thank you to the MoMA @themuseumofmodernart for sharing your treasures.
And thank you to that random guy who threw out a non-threatening cheesey pick up line on 27th yesterday. You made me smile.
Thank you to the beautiful galleries that hosted me this week, I'll be back!!! @gagosian @lehmannmaupin @c24gallery @lyonswiergallery @luhringaugustine @geminigel
And dearest Richard Serra @richard.serra and @teresita.fernandez your art was particularly moving to me. It was exactly the art I needed to see. Thank you both for your vision, blood, sweat, and tears. You made a difference in my life this week.
