Barbara Burger, American

Barbara Burger

New York City supplies me with an inexhaustible source of subject matter. 

Central Park is, of course, irresistible, with the changing beauty of its various seasons. 

But almost everywhere else one looks, something unexpected may be found.  There is the fascination of the patterns of rooftops against the sky and of the majestic sweep of bridges.  There is the geometric interplay that is part of a subway station and the startling appearance of a piece of temporary construction equipment.

Again and again, as I wander about in this city I love, I am struck by the myriad artistic possibilities that dwell in that which is seemingly ordinary.
