This is a collaboration piece I did with my friend Jim Budman. He owns a gallery workspace studio in Venice that I paint in from time to time. He originally had taken a photo of the twin towers a year to the day before the tragic event from the balcony of his studio in New York. He asked artists to do whatever they pleased with the photograph. The piece covers a little of the story of whats happened since and the moment itself. The matador bull represents the bull market, with bricks collapsing inside of it representing the housing market. The Bear, Bear market taking over, and the Dove in the wine glass is in honor of the people who passed along with the vertical array of striped color representing the variety of ethnicity.
