"Chapel Americana" was a nondenominational meditative space that was located in my former studio in the old Artkraft Strauss billboard factory on 57th Street in Manhattan. The north wall was masonry with built-in lighting fixtures, and was the Chapel's light source; the south, west, and east walls were composed of a cycle of abstract paintings whose value structure interacts mysteriously with the light of the illuminated masonry wall. Below is a video produced by Jennifer Hsu and Carolina Miranda of WNYC. Also, see additional still images below.
