SOL'SAX

SOL'SCRYPT, 2008

Faceted glass in mezzanine windows and platform windscreens

Based upon African and African-American culture and history and fused with the contemporary music and pop culture from his Brooklyn neighborhood, SOL'SAX's faceted glass project addresses in visual form the layers of memory and culture that influence and inspire his work.

The vibrant colors and intricate designs in the art panels represent the artist's creative explorations. Images of city life are melded with symbols of ancient African cultural influences and relics. The compositions are intended to provide guidance, and protection, inspiration for all traveling through the station.
