Artwork: Allerton Mandalas (Michele Brody)

From nycsubway.org

Location: Allerton Avenue ยท Installed: 2006

"Working with the layouts for the 2 and 5 red and green lines as they run from the Bronx through Manhattan to Brooklyn, the four Mandalas that I created for the Allerton Avenue Station were derived from layering, twisting and turning the outlines of green and red into a series of intertwining radiating patterns. These Mandalas were generated with the desire to coat the train platform with a central abstract image of color, light and form. From up close, or afar, each Mandala is meant to at first dazzle the viewer with color and light, then upon closer inspection, reveal a central structure inspired by the mark of subway lines themselves. Their meanings are open to interpretation, and are meant as a form of meditation for the passing public and subway riders." -- Michele Brody. Source: cuny.edu
