New Work at Far Rockaway-Mott Ave Station by Jason Rohlf

Respite, 2011

Laminated glass

Today, we’re celebrating the Grand Opening of the newly renovated Mott Avenue station in the Rockaways with the unveiling of Jason Rohlf’s beautiful installation, Respite. Gorgeous glass panels in jewel-toned colors, designed from Rohlf’s original paintings, dramatically diffuse the light inside to create a richly saturated interior space. The work can be seen throughout the station as well as from outside, adding visual impact to the existing architecture. The artist’s design features birds perching on long branches, grouped within three distinct color themes – green for dawn, blue for midday and orange for dusk – and relates to the strong links between nature and light in this seaside community. The work was fabricated by Franz Mayer of Munich. Head to the Rockaways to see it for yourself!
