Artist Statement
Manhattan's Metro leads underground to the texts and textures of the subway system, from the sleek line of the rails to the wild inspiration of the graffiti, the demarcating mosaics and the detritus dropped along the way. Along the edge of the antique token, even the words Transit Authority have morphed into a graffiti imprint, as has the cutout Y in the center.
