30 Rock III
30 Rockefeller Plaza is the address attributed to Rockefeller Center. The large sculpture that greets visitors at the building entrance is Atlas, the Greek Titan, holding the heavens. To many it is a symbol of strength and determination. To me it is a thing of beauty that speaks to my artistic side. I am drawn to it and I photographed it from many perspectives,- underneath, both sides, from behind. This view takes advantage of the size and scale of the sculpture with the counterpoint of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral across 5th Avenue. The figures with the primary color umbrellas happen to add a new focal point and a little fun to a monochromatic scene. Although this painting is one of a series of paintings at Rockefeller Plaza, it fits perfectly into my narrative of People, Places and Things, just one of many moments in time.
