About the exhibition

New York Rambling is a large scale drawing project which came out of a desire to cultivate an intimate experience and spark escapism.

Not everybody has the opportunity to visit a gallery or travel to big cities so the concept for New York Rambling came out of a desire to produce an inclusive artwork, that anyone, regardless of background can participate in and appreciate in their own way. It’s a chance for the viewer to escape the day-to-day and project themselves into the iconic city of New York – to get lost in its layers and feel safe in its storied architectural features.

New York Rambling is a project which aims to provide escapism, an experience of a place created for an inclusive audience. It stems from the idea of creating art which gives an opportunity for all people to appreciate it, regardless of any previous art experience, through the idea of familiarity of the place, i.e. New York City.

New York Rambling has journeyed across the globe reaching out to audiences from Logan QLD, with panels displayed in Abu Dhabi UAE, New York and Sydney. The project consists of 5 panels created to adjust and wrap to various walls and spaces. It can be displayed as individual artworks (largest measuring 1.5 x 6 metres) or as a singular piece with all panels connecting together (up to 22 metres in length). There is also flexibility to remove panels or to collaborate and create additional panels to suit a specific gallery/area/space for exhibit (subject to costs).
