4 Seasons Seasoned, 2004
Glass mosaic on mezzanine walls above stairs
For his mosaics, Robert Kushner created bouquets of flowers - from every season - that reflect such influences as Dutch flower paintings and Japanese screens. Most neighborhoods have flower shops, but they are abundant on the Upper East Side, and have associations with many of the city's finest hospitals, parks, and museums located there. A painter, sculptor and printmaker, Kushner has always been fascinated by organic motifs. A key figure of the Pattern and Decoration movement, he continues to feature vegetal motifs in his works, often along with geometric patterns and architectural shapes. At 77th Street he gives the community a blazing bouquet to brighten the day (and night).
