This exhibition of intricate Mylar cutouts and drawings at Park Towne Place is inspired by the architectural facades and windows of Girard Avenue, a major commercial and residential street that traverses Philadelphia. I lived in Brewerytown for two years, and I continue to work in Kensington. Permanent and impermanent aspects of these rapidly gentrifying and evolving neighborhoods are layered and juxtaposed in my imagery. By delicately cutting and layering mylar I depict a wall, through which the tower of St. Michael’s Church can be seen rendered in graphite. The brick and mortar pattern on the glass walls of the gallery evolves into a kite, with a row home painted on the sail. This floating house is a visual metaphor for the tenuous emotional and physical connection to home that is experienced by many people.
