Description

From the artist: "New York is a city that I like a lot -- perhaps a little bit more even than I like Tokyo....for me New York isn't just a place somewhere in the world -- New York is for me the world itself. It certainly is a melting pot...but it is at once charged with an indefinable sort of tenderness and sadness....if Tokyo, the place on 'this side' that is so close yet at once so irritatingly far, is 'my country,' then New York is for me a far but familiar place on the other side, or in other words, 'another country.'"
