I hope my artwork fosters constructive thought, stimulates meaningful conversation, and the sheer pleasure of ownership. Simply said, my goal is to create appealing art that addresses issues of the environment and a multitude of human conditions.
I am most struck by opposites: light and shadow, line and angle, color and tones, as well as attraction and aversion. I use meaningful visual contexts to explore contradictory feelings and ideas via photomontage, wall-art and poetry..
An example of my work exploring contrasts is my Operative Oppositions photomontage series. It reveals opposing issues: warfare with performance, battle with the vulnerability, religion with the secular, and so on. In spite of disease, social injustice and other hindrances — we live with camaraderie in our daily regimens. Thus the title: Operative Oppositions.
Abstract art pieces offer viewers a meditative opportunity to interpret color and shape. I hope that the study of my images may stimulate internal dialogue and reflective feedback.
VISUAL THEMES INCLUDE:
The “Geometrics One & Two" series mix, match and re-envision existing and personal images, which create a new visual/structural relationship.
"Metro Melts” and my “Heatwave” series abstract three existing buildings and other elements, creating a lyrical and sensuous beauty in their melding.
My “Operative Oppositions” series juxtapose the arts and vulnerability with warfare. I ask the viewer to take in the entirety. Deconstruct and ponder images, which can be disturbing and ultimately constructive.
The “Walls” images communicate protectionism with hopes and fears. I will leave their interpretation up to the viewer. Note a similar concept coming into Berk’s “Global” series as well.
The “Stumped” series takes a dead tree trunk and explores where it might have been and what it may have experienced. This imaginative and amusing series illustrates the concept that inner tree rings have logged-in history.
Thank you for considering the images on my website.
