Kings Highway Hieroglyphs, 1987
Porcelain enamel at station entrances
The artwork consists of brightly painted porcelain enamel panels that use symbols and figures to create a contemporary version of Egyptian hieroglyphs. Against a blue background, large figures walk forward framed by symbols that represent subway visits and the nearby beach. In the artist's words, "If public art is elegantly and permanently crafted, it will delight audiences of the present and the future, in the way the wall paintings of ancient civilizations delight us today..."
