Paper versions are printed on German Etching paper, image size 15.5 x 15.5, sheet size 17 x 22, $390, shipped in flat cardboard mailer. I am happy to work with you with other methods of framing and mounting for customized interiors installations. From a series called "Immersions." These pieces began with photographs taken at the beach on the first summer weekends after the lifting of pandemic lock down. It was exhilarating to see people embracing sunlight, the joy of living in the body, and the transformations of water after a dark winter. I was lucky to catch these two men alone on the diving platform in a rare choreographed sequence. This piece combines various photographs into a landscape of industrial surface, blazing color and figures moving in space that is both real and dreamed. Alchemy: these pieces express the power of water to bring us into harmony with the landscape, in an ambiguous space in which figure and field become one. The visual approach is inspired by a recent exhibit of Monet's work at Étretat. The selection of paintings included early photographs and essays about the interplay between painters and photographers in the Impressionist movement. It is a dialog that continues here, with modern photography and a painter's mind.

Throughout my work I explore impermanence as it occurs in the urban landscape and in nature. My architectural prints and mixed media pieces focus on the radical reshaping of the built landscape through gentrification and de-industrialization. As we are confronted with change and our relationship to it, I am interested in the question of how much of the past we value and hold onto, and how much we let go to make the future our “now.” My work lives on the edge between nostalgia and accommodation, mediating through the elements of surface and iconic structure to a conversation about history, identity and sense of place. I have been a calligrapher and letter form artist for much of my professional art career, creating well known brandmarks for film, books and packaging. I have created custom typographic identities for Kitty Kelly, Clive Barker, Naomi Judd, and Anne Rice among others, and movie titling for Dreamworks and Walt Disney. As a fine artist I bring my passion for mark making and the architecture of letter forms into the abstract realm. I have a calligrapher's subtle sense of surface and texture, and incorporate calligraphic mark making into many of my pieces. I use photography, digital composition, printmaking, mixed media and collage, shifting as needed to suit my subject matter. I embrace new media and the infinite ways in which the analog and the digital can be shaken, stirred and poured into a new creative form.
