I made this piece with the intent of promoting the strength and beauty of this city in a lighthearted manner. I have lived in Boston for four years now, and each year I am struck by the way in which the city overcomes the harsh, white winter and blooms into a beautiful magnificence. In the same way that Boston defeats the bitter cold, it has conquered a heartbreaking tragedy with resilience and perseverance. I took images that to me depict Boston–swan boats, brownstones, blossoming trees, and created a scene that depicts a transition from a static, colorless space into a place that is triumphant with life and color.
