Artist Statement

  I was 16 when my mother was fortunate enough to land a job in the Post Office located in the American Pavilion at Expo 67.  Habitat 67 was in the neighborhood and it was then and there I was, unwittingly, exposed to Brutalist architecture some years before its decline; we lived 50 miles away in Champlain, New York, and she made the trip daily.   
 
According to Wikipedia: “Habitat 67, or simply Habitat, is a model community and housing complex in MontrealCanada, designed by Israeli/Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. It was originally conceived as his master's thesis in architecture at McGill University and then built as a pavilion for Expo 67, the World's Fair held from April to October 1967. Habitat 67 is widely considered an architectural landmark and one of the most recognizable and significant buildings in both Montreal and Canada.”
 
I can tell you without fear of contradiction that there is nothing like it between Montreal and New York City.   I think it’s beautiful and I’m “borrowing” its geometry for this body of 2D work.
