Writings

“. . . and who therefore ran through the icy streets obsessed with a sudden flash of the alchemy. . .”
from Howl, Allen Ginsberg


Paintings: marks, kinetic sensation, chaotic energy, a building, a destruction, mental, emotional, complex and bewildering spaces, autobiographical references, major dreams, minor non-dreams.

Guests: Origami paper cranes because of their special place in traditional Japanese legends. In each legend they are the magical transforming vehicle which takes an individual past their intellectual considerations, to a place beyond those limitations.

Materials: gouache, ink, watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, conte, soft pastels, oil pastels, pencil, polymer medium, spray paint, enamel, rice papers, newspaper, Andes mint foils on Arches hot-pressed 100% rag, acid-free paper, mounted on canvas.
