Artwork Size: 96 x 72"

Commissioned by National Elevator Cab and Door Co., Long Island City, NY.

Private collection

In 1985 the artist was commissioned by the National Elevator Cab and Door Company to make a large painting and an edition of prints based on the new observation elevators the company installed in the Marriott Marquis Hotel when it was first built in Times Square in Manhattan . The owner of the company appears twice in this piece, first looking out of the second window from the left, and then behind the camera in the right side window. Each window in the car was painted with a different color palette to give the illusion of reflective glass. The drawn perspective and the artist’s use of color create a strong illusion of three-dimensionality.
