What Would Carl Say | 29.5″ x 20″ | Watercolor/collage on paper | 2019/20
My work consists of painted constructions, works on paper, collages, watercolor and encaustic. Themes evolving over the years have elements of abstraction and geometric imagery, often combined with realistic imagery.
References appear with subject matter that alludes to the botannical and environmental; erotic; topical, historical, and regional events; the sciences and geography; often combined in different configurations and combinations.
Recent works are a compilation and summary of my works and interests as an artist. One particular ongoing series deal with the natural elements of the periodic table, often with geo-political implications.
I’ve been active in the Detroit art scene since the 1970’s as an artist and on boards and committees of art organizations.
My BFA and MA degrees are in painting from Wayne State University. My work is represented in private and public collections, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, Wayne State University, Henry Ford Health System, and the University of Michigan.
