Easter Island in Manhattan

8 x 8 Oil on Archival Board

If you ever get to NYC, the lobby of the Grand Hyatt hotel is definitely a destination. We stayed there recently and I have to say, I really didn't want to leave. Just sitting there near "Awilda" and "Chloe", two huge sculptures created by Jaume Plensa, is quite wonderful. While researching these pieces, I came across Jaume Plensa's quote: "Awilda and Chloe" are metaphors for the diversity and similarity of all people…(they) pay homage to anonymous people in motion." I'm not sure whether this is Awilda or Chloe, and I certainly saw lots of anonymous people in motion!
