The many faces of New York City have always inspired Martha Szabo. Her deep love of the city is reflected in her work, which includes portraits of her fellow New Yorkers and poetic depictions of urban rooftops that evoke a quiet, understated beauty city dwellers often overlook. Among her most moving works are her highly personal views of the Manhattan skyline. In these abstract vistas, rectilinear buildings appear to come alive and take sinuous, biomorphic shape, embracing and dancing with one another.

Ever evolving, in recent years this versatile artist has added animal portraits to her repertoire, in recognition of the fact that New Yorkers’ deep and growing love for their animal companions is an important motif in contemporary culture.

In all of Martha Szabo’s work, we see nature asserting itself even in the man-made concrete canyons of the world’s most dynamic city.
