About the Work
“My work has to do with the global present and takes account of matters, issues, events, and phenomena which impinge on the quality and tenor of daily life in a serious way. In responding, I consciously seek ways, via material, matter and form in which to reference and illumine the Contemporary, both its nature and its substance.”
