Artist Statement

These images – derive directly from my imagination and all of my obsessions in concert. The images which are cut and assembled from the edges of history are cobbled together to push the images from my mind.

Books and literature, cultural history, 19th C travel, art history, musings fill me and my imagination with fragments that I reinterpret. Tumult, sea change of my past and other personal experiences allow darkness and gravity to imply images, that rise to the surface.

My reconfigurations and adjustments suggest other possibilities and other realms. A blue Arcadia emerges.
