“I wanted to make the painting that New York deserves right now,” she said. “It’s such a bloody awful time in so many ways. At the same time, New York is having one of its richest moments in history for lots of people. So I wanted a very celebratory picture, but also that tumultuousness and dysfunction.”
“Painting,” she added, “is very good at saying more than one thing at once.”
