Historical Context:
"My artistic vision cannot be separated from my architectural training where I 'choose the eyes to see' and to perceive a perspective so profoundly subjective and at the same time familiar to me as is the urban space. I look at the American cities in their struggle to survive. I see the world from different angles like flying over these fragmented and unstable cities. I feel the city that I so dearly love as a daily challenge in the wish to survive while waiting for the red light to change. The optimism for the desired success is depicted in the vibrant colors I use to express these views." -Gretchen Minnhaar
