Artist Statement

New York is a city populated by dreamers. Even in our tumultuous present, these dreams are as vivid and abundant as ever. Here, a carpet of flowers symbolizes the constellations of people within the city who help each individual to realize their dreams. The shoulders we stand on are often simply those we stand shoulder to shoulder with: the dreamer is sustained by the same hopes that sustain those around her.
