You'll like Gwyneth if: you can’t help but belt out the lyrics of “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra whenever you hear it
My focus on construction as subject matter began in 2015 when a 42 floor building went up right outside my painting studio window in the Garment District. I was losing a view I loved, but decided to give this unwanted change my full attention. I made scores of drawings and paintings of the whole construction process from the foundation up. By the time it topped out the subject matter had become an enduring fascination.
