Subway Prints

In the 1980s I lived in Boston and rode the T (the subway) to work every day. After hating the noise, the rattling, the stench and the long underground delays, I decided that, instead of being miserable, I should use my time in the T in my work. So I made a series of etchings and monotypes which I call my subway prints.
