“I am inspired by the energy of the city at night. Through the use of vibrant color, luscious brushwork and sense of motion, I am able to capture the essence of the city. This piece is about a fleeting moment. A dazzling moment experienced by the hubcap on its way to the curb. I got involved in this project because I thought it was a great way to recycle, and a chance to make a beautiful piece of art out of a rusty old piece of metal.”Alexandra Pacula
