ART DROP #5, OCT 2023

Welcome to our latest art drop, exclusive to our Substack readers.

As detailed in our newsletter, this month’s art drop was made in Chinatown, NYC on a rainy night in September. We’ve selected two prints – Tom’s choice is Wonton Garden thanks to its Blade Runner color scheme and graphic qualities. Diana’s selection is Pegasus on Pell Street – a photograph she stumbled upon almost accidentally that now demands to be seen, as wild and experimental and triumphant as it is. We invite you to enlarge the images below and hope you enjoy them.

This limited release ends on October 7, 2023, with no further production of this work for at least a year after the close.


Photographs by Diana Pappas

Title: Wonton Garden
Location: Chinatown, NYC, USA
Artist: Diana Pappas

Unavailable until October 2024.

The lanterns hanging above the streets in Chinatown bring character and atmosphere to the neighborhood at any time of day – but I could never simply photograph them as they are. I decided to experiment and see what the light would do if I slowed my shutter down and panned side to side. The lanterns and lights became beads on a necklace and stitches in embroidery.

Title: Pegasus on Pell Street
Location: Chinatown, NYC, USA
Artist: Diana Pappas

Unavailable until October 2024.

The desire to experiment with the camera was there already, but my hand was forced to yield to the elements and shoot this scene through a lens covered in rain droplets. The result? A photograph unlike any I’ve taken before. Pegasus takes flight over Pell Street and the scene is charged with energy. It’s magical, gritty and ethereal all at once.
