Women on the Edge of Time

 Woman,  Crossing

The interaction of nature and the built environment has been the content of my work forever. Here in the city we, the people are the dominant element of nature. The intersection offers a unique chance to observe us in many ways. This woman, the second the light changed, strode rapidly, and purposefully ahead of everyone. She caught my attention, as a black woman with determination. She made me think about issues of race, class, attitude, mental state and became my subject here.
