"Different Forms of One We" is a constant
in my work. It is the immense complexity of the human experience
that fascinates me, and my work is approached from every aspect, angle,
tangle, dimension, possibility, under, over, outside inside, and the
is hidden deep within. For me, abstract art unleashes the mind
all constrictions, forms, classifications, configurations, and other
laced into our "rational" interpretation of the universe. It is
constant play with creativity that inspires me, and how the endless
of possibilities triggers off multiple reactions of ideas, thoughts,
and responses as myriad as the endless play of forms, line, color,
etc. Other works include installation projects, public art projects,
murals. Land art installations, environmental art, and large scale
art projects are directions I am interested in going, along with design
and architecture. Video is probably next.
Shipping, handling, and insurance are the
responsibility. There are intellectual property rights that the artist
assumes and the buyer respects. In the event that a work of art
sold in the future, the State of California mandates a 3% return of any
profits to the artist. The artist is pursuing a policy of 30% return to
the artist of any future resale, to help overturn the long and onerous
tradition of the "starving artist syndrome." Hopefully the
of my work would want to work towards overturning the devastating
of so many, too many, artists. And if no % is returned to
artist, at least give back to and support the art community.
