About the Project
The set of diptych, or multi-paneled paintings, at Reading Terminal Market depict a rough timeline of the market’s and SEPTA’s roles in the community. Using color to denote the passage of time, the images begin with a sepia-toned view of mid-century market-goers and train-riders. As the timeline progresses, the colors become more vivid, until they reach their full saturation in the present-day. The relatable imagery, including a still life of the produce sold at the market, a train station packed with commuters, and a parent and child at the lunch counter, evokes the truism that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
