Driving Range, Bronx Golf Center, 2017
22" H x 34" W
This painting is part of a series of paintings I did at the abandoned Bronx Golf Center. The Bronx Golf Center is 12 acres in total. This once vibrant family entertainment center now contains crumbling old structures that nature is slowly reclaiming: remnants of a miniature golf course, a driving range, and batting cages that are disappearing under creeping vines and weeds. Since being abandoned, the golf center has become a refuge for graffiti artists, homeless people, and feral cats. Recently, suspicious fires destroyed several of the buildings and the property owners have repaired the fence, making access to the site difficult, if not impossible. Luckily I befriend some workers on the site and was able to get back in to complete several more paintings.
