North White Plains

Rolando Briseño

At the Table, 1991

Cast aluminum low-relief sculpture on platform columns

The artwork at this station is a series of cast aluminum sculptures in low relief along the platform's columns. The artist Rolando Briseño's unusual architectural treatment of the column capitals complement the North White Plains station's architecture while creating an eye-catching and surprising array of everyday objects that are etched into the sculptural forms as symbols. These are completed by six black architectonic pieces that combine these symbols- which include parts of a table, fruit, hands, and other body parts, and even televisions. "I depict these symbols that we use and see every day in movement to reflect our relation to time and existence; everything, including ourselves, is made of atoms, always in movement," Briseño says.
