About The Artwork

Temporarily unavailable due to being exhibited for the month of September 2021. Abstract Surrealism: Relating to Zen Buddhist scripts. Ubiquitous change. Beyond the test of life that entraps us, there is anticipation. The briar can protect you or ensnare you. It is difficult to catagorise my work, but I am interested in the human condition and eternity. The materials I have chosen allow me to create meticulous details 90% with the colour pencils, over a dense background of multiple layers of pencil and Copic markers. My pieces appear as paintings, but I call them Pencil Paintings which encompasses the mixed media I use.

My work does not conveniently fit into a category. There are elements of abstraction and glimpses of "reality". One might guess at surrealism, but I do not think of my work as such. My objective is about taking a fresh look at the traditional landscape. By using this familiar format, a dialogue is created between the viewer and the image. The brain always attempts to organize the lines, shapes and colors it perceives; with no easy reference point, there may be no connection. A recognizable arrangement even though out of the ordinary begins the communication. The composition arrangements are originally discovered by a random array of tissues and recycled papers, viscerally suggesting nascent scenes which ignite my imagination to use as a model for preliminary sketches. Born 1949, New York City. U.S.A.I have been an artist since childhood.I consider that the best is still ahead of me. It is my identity. I draw, paint and sculpt. For more than a decade now, my subject matter in art has been based on theories of a futuristic world. All my work has originated from or related to, cast off objects and recycled materials. My first major drawing on paper series, begun end of 2008 into 2009, The Peripheral World (or Peripherals), was first inspired by thrown away paper tissues, and creased papers. I have aspirations and plans for larger and more complex pieces.
