John Dubrow spent a year on the 87th floor of the World Trade Tower, painting his fantastically complex and cubistic "View of Manhattan". While he worked, Rackstraw Downes, Diana Horowitz and Lois Dodd were painting their own interpretations of the city on other floors of the same building.

And it seems sometimes like I could work on a painting forever. You do one thing and a whole new world opens up and why hold on to the old image when you’ve got this new world to explore? For me it’s just an exploration in change -John Dubrow in an interview with Painting Perceptions
