Dan Funderburgh: Regarding Growth

One Pierrepont Plaza

June 7, 2021 - November 12, 2021

Artwork by Dan Funderburgh at One Pierrepoint Plaza in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn-based artist Dan Funderburgh’s large-scale vinyl artwork in the lobby of One Pierrepont Plaza is inspired by a recent spring visit to Brooklyn Botanic Garden. A series of three murals depicts colorful flowers at different stages of budding and blooming over, under, and around thick traversing lines. With this work, Funderburgh captures the anticipation and excitement of spring and rebirth, particularly after a harsh winter. His work celebrates the drive to flourish and overcome obstacles that is within all of us – the notion that no barricade can hold us back forever, and that we will overcome and thrive again.
