Mosaic and glass
The mosaic artwork at 53 St Station is by Mickalene Thomas, a Brooklyn-based contemporary artist best known for her mixed-media, rhinestone and enamel paintings that have been exhibited around the world. The collage-like design juxtaposes textile patterns with the imagery of plants found in New York, bringing the beauty of nature and domestic interiors into the station. A repeating geometric pattern of emanating concentric rings carries throughout the piece like a photo flash or solar flare.
