His work is included in numerous private and public collections, including the Weatherspoon Art Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, Neuberger Museum of Art, Frost Museum of Art, Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, and New York Public Library. Awards include a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts. He edited an anthology of writings on contemporary art—titled Artists, Critics, Context: Readings in and around American Art since 1945—published by Prentice-Hall and is currently Professor of Fine Arts at St. John’s University in New York City.

Artist's Statement

How can painting and drawing evoke the physical sensations and conceptual associations one has while navigating architectural spaces that can’t be reduced to its purely visual elements? By suspending a temporal experience within a static image, my paintings and drawings offer an opportunity to reflect on the ways in which bodily experience is overlaid at every turn with informational and mental pulsations. My overarching goal is to make images that remind us of our deep need to actively establish visual, tactile, and reflective connections to our physical world.
