Valley Stream

Malin Abrahamsson

On the Trail of the Rising Sun, 2008

Glass and ceramic mosaic on West Stair Wall, Escalator Wall and Platform Waiting Room

At Valley Stream Station a series of mosaic works fills the new platform waiting room with works of calming color and charming vistas.

Portraying the skies and scenery of the area, Swedish-born and Brooklyn-based artist Malin Abrahamsson creates a broad swath of green bands punctuated with more detailed mosaics of local sights, such as a pair of Canadian Geese, a house, and the nearby clock tower.

Two other large mosaic panels hang above the west stairway and escalator, showing a pale blue sky with a touch of green at the bottom, a seagull in flight, and floating clouds. The works bring to commuters a painter's sensibility with views of the rolling lawns and shrubs of the close-by suburbs, under expansive skies.
