Large Format Watercolor Painting and Glass Sculpture
Several years ago I was lucky to have a personal tour on the rooftop of one of the prominent buildings in downtown Manhattan with Jack Lieb of Tower 49. The view was spectacular and his stories of events related to the building and the area it surveys was an inspiration. This led to the show which was mounted in the lobby gallery.
These paintings are views from atop and around Tower 49. At 12 feet by 8 feet each they are the largest-format suite of watercolor paintings I have completed so far.
Born in Whitehorse, Yukon in 1958, David Antonides has studied in Vancouver, Europe and New York. His work is focused on watercolour- but in an approach that creates a weight and drama not normally associated with this typically transparent and fragile medium.
