Universal City, 2006
Faceted glass in platform windscreens
In his portrayal of cityscapes with vast colorful skies full of energy and motion, Nicky Enright's faceted glass windows are a tribute to New York. The artist created dramatic views with oversize skies, minimizing the size of buildings and city. He plays on space and direction to create fragmented views, contracting the angles of the subway. The scene shows a calm city under heavens filled with constellations, shooting stars, planets, moons and vibrant sunsets. Through the artwork, Enright encourages commuters to contemplate, if only for a moment, the mystery and excitement of the city and its place in the universe.
