Born in New York City, raised by kindly docents at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, every new gallery was an adventure, an education, powerfully stimulating and profoundly peaceful.
The work I do now — collage, assemblage, and mixed media paintings — draw upon these early experiences and the joy that accompanied them.
With some exceptions, the pieces are neither representational or wholly abstract; there may be a narrative but it is broken into fragments, the subjects recognizable but not exactly real. Backgrounds are often neutral, suspending the image in a visual limbo, discouraging fixed meaning, encouraging the viewer’s participation in the process.
In this sense, the work is often incomplete, purposely so, propelled forward, as is, into an unfathomable future.
