I have painted very few times the subway from the inside, but when I started working on the theme of lines in the Parking and Airport series I also started photographing the lines and movements that I saw when I was stopped at the platform waiting for the subway, and I painted some work.
In this small 20x20cm artwork I used a black fabric and then with a few signs I outlined the famous “yellow line”, the one not to be crossed and the lines of the tunnel, and finally the very few elements of the subway (the train, some billboard in the background). You can see the various steps in the 3 reels that I just posted on Instagram. Even in the height of darkness there are lines that show us the way to go, I like this thing that comes out of this work. It is a very balanced painting in which the lines have a very evocative coloristic force.
Happy Monday and good week everyone!
