The Mice of Jackson Square

"the Mice of Jackson Square". Six paintings telling one story, of a colony of mice which lived in Jackson Square until they were escorted out by the authorities at large. I befriended these hypnotic creatures heading home early one morning. With not a soul to be seen they were involved in a mouse trance dance circus, as I passed. I could not believe my eyes. What a joy, to see these tiny creatures having fun, amongst the bushes of green leaves and gold straw, in a dimly lit Downtown Manhattan Park. Many times after that i would stand looking in, observing the unfathomable rituals of these mice. Never could i break into their world. i was enchanted by their stares and postures, such a lively crowd of little inhabitants.
