payphone paintings

The payphone, deep rooted and permanent, connected people who may not have otherwise been able to have a phone of their own. It was a link to a vast social network. Past movie stars’ history include the payphone booth as their office; careers launched by using the public phone to their advantage. As a kid, this was the last place you stopped before calling home for a ride. When I moved to Toronto, the payphone was my link to the past and my future. Eventually, a pocket size phone would replace it and then a hand held computer. Now we make calls as if acting out a scene from Star Trek via FaceTime or Skype. When I see a payphone, it is still science fiction. It is a time machine by way of memory.
