Manhattan fantasy

That evening, I was sitting facing this view, in my hotel room...


And I could not imagine that reality could have gone so far beyond my wildest fantasies: The lines of force, pure energy, symmetry in anarchy, oppositions of full and empty, complementary and opposite dimensions...


All I had to do was take my pencil and for once... a rare time... no longer trying to escape from reality. It went beyond fantasies. This sculpture was born there instinctively... An anamorphosed perspective view of lower Manhattan with Broadway and 5th Avenue surrounded by skyscrapers including the One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building.


Everything was there but I had the impression that to have looked at it with such intensity would leave my mark on this universe like those of the millions of unknown souls who participated in these irrational erections.
