Studio in New York

3 February, 2000

With the idea of doing my large format paintings in situ, in the place where they were going to be exhibited, and wanting to get to know the cultural life of New York, I decide to move to Manhattan. I rent a studio on East 81st Street with York Avenue, near the Metropolitan, the MOMA and the Guggenheim museums; where I spend a lot of time. Two months later I wonder what I am doing there, in such cold weather, and I decide to return to the warm Mediterranean and its light, which I miss. Nevertheless, I love New York City and I like to visit at least once a year.
