    Artist's Statement

    Relationships
    (I always say) are never easy:
    especially those between
    color, shape, texture, space . . .
    and tension.
    The relationship of the part to the part,
    the part to the whole and the relationship
    of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
    what materials I use is all important.
    I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
    pieces to help communicate a connection
    between the individual and
    the universal whole.

    In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
    printing press plates which I sand,
    cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
    about energy and light, patterns and
    motion, all influenced by the microcosm
    of life forms, biology, and a
    hint of satire.
