Old Friends (No. 15/25)
Governor's Island is open to the public via ferry service in the summer from Brooklyn Bridge Park and lower Manhattan. It's often mobbed, but still a beautiful, strange place to go. No one lives on the island any more, but there are houses, and apartment buildings. Some have been kept up, some are in total decay. We walked around in the sun plenty, and then sat in the middle of a green square that is surrounded by houses that have been maintained. These two gentlemen were deep in idle Saturday afternoon conversation, like they'd always been there and were never going to leave.
• Unframed piece measures 6.25" x 9"
• Letterpress printed in an edition of 25, and then hand watercolored, so each of the 25 finished images is actually different.
• This listing is for the specific image you see in the accompanying photographs.
These drawings are part of a series entitled "Everything is Somewhere". They are blind line contour drawings I made all over New York City in the summer of 2014. Each drawing was made into a plate, which I then letterpress printed, and each finished piece is hand watercolored, making each image in the edition of 25 unique.
