World Trade Center
Paintings > 2002


World Trade Center Renaissance is a three paintings polyptych : WTC Manifesto, WTC Day and WTC Night, created in 2002.

This polyptych was brought to New York in December 2002 and handed over to professional fireman James Hanlon (also an actor and a filmmaker), assigned to the Engine 7-Ladder 1 Fire Station, based at 100 Duane Street in the immediate proximity of the World Trade Center. This brigade had actively participated in the search operations and rescue of survivors within the devastated Twin Towers platform, renamed "Ground Zero" after the attacks of September 11, 2001.
