REFLECTIONS (THE SERIES)

The oil paintings include 1) the reflection of a water tower in the plate glass windows of a modern building in downtown NYC. 2) the reflection of buildings in a canal in Amsterdam. Dr. Spiro loves how the architecture is shown bending into curves and unusual shapes.

The photographs tell the story of architecture in Budapest and Prague as it is seen distorted in the reflection of car windows.
