In Case You Get Homesick

In Case You Get Homesick; rice paper, sumi ink, watercolor, hand turned cherry wood; 2010; © Meg Thompson. SOLD
This piece attempts to capture the sprawling “landscape” of the city. The Brooklyn Bridge and its history connect two worlds and many people, both metaphorically and in reality. It’s construction tells that complicated story of labor: the beauty and horrors of the sacrifices humans have made in order to survive. And it is the most beautiful view of the city to me. This painting was made for a native New Yorker who recently moved West. The city will miss her, but the West is lucky to have her.
