Amie Cunat: The Clock is Taking a Nap.
Aug 03-Nov 05
The Clock is Taking a Nap., a mural by Amie Cunat as a part of FiftyTwo Ft, a series of long-term wall-based artworks in the East Corridor. The imagery within the mural is sourced from drawings of churches and other buildings in New York City. The work depicts building-like structures tightly packed across the wall as if they had been extracted from a dense urban neighborhood where houses, commercial buildings, and places of worship respond and form to their adjacent architecture. In some areas, the structures contours bend as if their frames have been pulled out, leaving behind the suggestion of a jelly-like skin sagging from its own weight.
