Sculpture + 3D / Digital Art

About the work

All the works are arranged with an example of their accompaniments. These accompaniments were developed as extensions and further explorations, either thematically or dimensionally, of the original impulse and the original media.
• Images 1/2 and 5/6: The theme of an assemblage is further explored and developed through digital images.
• Images 7/8/9/10: The images of an assemblage are photographed then explored and developed two dimensionally through digital images.
• Images 3/4 and 13/14/15: Still images from the video/slide show component of these assemblages are digitally explored and further developed as independent graphics.

Artist Statement

Motivated by history, fascinated by the arts, baffled by human behavior, awed by the planet Earth, compelled by visions in my head: the images are stimulated by some thought read, some music heard, some thing seen, some event, some emotion; the images are formed through the arrangement of objects, photographs, graphics, and words; there are boxes to be opened, components to be moved, tales to be read, videos to be viewed. The images are focused upon notions of Homo sapiens view framing, and the subsequently envisioned perception of itself and of its planet, which then is carried about in a mind.

Selected Exhibitions

I did not retain date documentation. From 1973 to 1979 in the Philadelphia area I was in group or two person exhibitions at: Albright College, Hamilton College, and Muhlenberg College; Cheltenham Art Center, Earth Art One and Two; E.T.A.G.E. Gallery and Marian Locks East Gallery. Solo exhibitions were at the Marian Locks Gallery and at the Wharton School. In San Francisco, while active in the Fluxus inspired Mail Art movement, I was in group exhibits at the Source Gallery and lastly, in 1983 at Post Science Fair One.

Collaborative Projects

In the mid 1970’s as vice president serving with Terry Fox in Old City Arts, I was engaged as co-producer in the collaborative, public space, events Wear White At Night and No Man’s Land.
