AndréTavet + True Colors

Collaboration with André St. Clair.  Installed at the True Colors Residence in Central Harlem.


New York is a city of opportunity and transformation.   In The Promise, the traveling subject finds her/his path to self-love under the watchful eyes of a fabulous personal deity, looming in the dreamlike blue sky.   The rainbow cityscape serves a beacon of hope, embodying the communal spirit of the True Colors Residence.

The piece was inspired by The Great Gatsby, The Wizard of Oz, and by collages by The Archigram Group.
