Gun Hill Road
My Sun (Mi Sol), My Planet (Mi Planeta) and My City (Mi Ciudad), 2006
Faceted glass in platform windscreens
In her series, Andrea Arroyo creates colorful figures in faceted glass to portray her theme of sun, planet, and city. The glassworks bring lively color to the station, providing visual interest and a place for the commuter to concentrate on positive thoughts and energy. Inspired by life in the city, the artist wanted to convey humanity, community, and harmony through her artwork. As she explains, "In my work I celebrate nature and humanity, while examining the notions of gender, race and identity. My interest in the human form derives from my background in dance."
