“These works are part of a series of paintings that describe an imagined world. This world is a product of my city-kid yearnings for calm, space, and beauty, while also influenced by my beliefs in more sustainable and more livable urban forms.

“Late Night at the Office” is inspired by Rockefeller Center. It tells the story of someone who stayed up until sunrise at the office. The painting includes motifs that can be found throughout the series,” they said.
