I was inspired by Central Park because of its location in the most densely populated area in the US. With all of the sky scrapers and buildings surrounding the park, I just had to build a detailed city scape of Central Park in Manhattan. I first started with the park in center of the piece where I used a large piece of wood that has been aging outside for very long time. If you look closely, you will see how moss and lichen grew on this piece of wood which mimics the trees and green space of central park. I then cut out all of the bodies of water for which I used a naturally weathered blue grey hardwood to look like water. Next, I carved out all of the baseball diamonds throughout the park and finally, I built a couple of key things that were noticeable from satellite images like central park ice rink/swimming pool. Most things are covered by the lush canopy of central park and I just wanted to reveal what you can see from above. Keep in mind that this art piece is meant to be more of an abstract art piece then a detailed replica of the area. Lastly, I built all the streets around the entire piece and then installed the tallest sky scrapers in Lower Manhattan and worked up to the opposite end where the buildings become smaller.
This is the most time consuming piece I have built to date, a lot of planning and work went into building this piece. There are no words to describe how interesting it looks in person. As the light in the house changes so does the art piece, it is an art piece that you will not be able to take your eyes off of; you will never get bored of it. I am sure that this art piece will be the biggest point of conversation in your home.
