"A devilishly well-planned illusion." -- The New York Times
A Handful of Keys is a trompe l'oeil (fool the eye) mural painted by the artist, depicting neighborhood children. The door and stone are also hand-painted illusions. The work was commissioned by The Village of Great Neck Plaza, Jean Celender, Mayor, for this historic Long Island downtown. It is integrated into the exterior wall of the Great Neck Center for the Visual and Performing Arts.
