My painting, “The Projects,” was the cover of the summer issue of the quarterly literary and art journal, “The Cafe Review.” Four of my pen & ink drawings are also included in the issue. The painting on the cover is a view from the window of my family’s 6th floor apartment on Stanley Avenue, in the Boulevard Housing Projects in East New York, Brooklyn.
Something about Marc Shanker’s work speaks to me, a sophisticated sense of whimsy, almost a serious or melancholy whimsy but playful at the same time. Deceptively complex.
