Miss Angrignon
15" x 15", acrylic, 2010

I was mesmerized when I saw Justyna for the very first time behind the counter of a video store. Justyna is a combination raggedy ann doll, japanese anime, and porcelain doll, all rolled into one. My original idea was to place her in the middle of one of Angrignon station's reddish-orange framed rectangular windows to complement her red hair, but when I saw these large ten foot diameter circular concrete windows in the middle of the station, I immediately changed my mind and decided to place her in the center of one of them. Her head placed in the middle of one of these round windows made me think of those religious icon paintings with halos around the subjects' heads. It is also the first Subway Series painting to exclude the station name on the back wall.
