McCarren Pool Series

While living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the 1980s, Vicki made a series of light graffiti drawings at McCarren Park Pool. At the time, the pool was an abandoned spot, graffitied over, and quite run down - which allowed for her to take up as much time and space as she wanted for the photographs.

Her works from the 80s and especially this series, are quick, raw, and experimental. She's drawing fast around the entire space, switching colors, and playfully including herself multiple times in each photograph. Once she leaves, no mark is left behind, and it is almost like she was never there.
