“Good evening, everyone. It’s wonderful to have you all here, for a mix of art, community, and nature. A special thanks to KRVC’s Gallery 505 for hosting us. 

I’m often drawn to a thought inspired by Cézanne: ‘The Landscape Thinks Itself in Us.’ This concept resonates deeply, especially as we navigate growing environmental challenges.


  • Our project to daylight Tibbetts Brook represents a shift towards collaborating with nature. I’m excited for this new chapter for our community.
  • We’re actively participating in NYC’s largest green infrastructure project. A heartfelt thank you to everyone involved, particularly to people like Stephanie, Christina, and the VCPA, among many others.
  • Reintroducing the brook is more than an environmental act; it’s a redefinition of our neighborhood and a piece of our identity.
  • This change prompts us to think about our future. How can we maintain this creative momentum and further enhance our community’s green initiatives?
  • My art usually captures past events, but this endeavor has inspired me to look forward with optimism. It’s a rare and valuable feeling in today’s world.
  • Stream daylighting isn’t just innovative; it’s about being in harmony with our environment, not trying to control it.
  • This initiative is a collective achievement, rekindling our relationship with the water and opening doors to new possibilities.
  • As we embrace this transformation, we’re also shaping our community’s narrative. Let’s continue this journey, expanding our commitment to sustainable practices across the Northwest Bronx.

We’re not only making a difference in our neighborhood but setting a broader example for harmonious living with nature. These paintings are just one part of this bigger picture. Thank you for being here.”
