American Artists Professional League

In this annual, opened, juried exhibition I participate with my oil painting, titled "Messages of New York No.2. " . a part of a series, this one depict Times Square, New York, in sunset, showing the not so touristy face of the area. However the real theme is the signs here, as on every paintings of this series. In the center, there is a white ad board , which is the seed of this painting: "Look up from your phone, it's REAL here". I placed this ad from a different location, aiming to achieve double irony, as Times Square is anything, but real...I'm trying to point out the danger of our convenient cell phones, meaning how it deform our language, thoughts, gives us the illusion of "real" communication...
