painting, drawing

My work is driven by color and graphic forms telling abstract allegories. I have work in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York City. I have had thirteen solo shows while participating in over thirty group venues. I have taught graphics, drawing, painting and art history at Parsons, Pratt, CUNY, and Westfield State University. Grounded in the joy of expression, I unify themes from archeological to multicultural with biomorphic imagery. Recently typography of alphabet letterforms from Runic to Morse Code and Numbers has inspired my art. Visualization of Haiku poems was my latest solo show. I see my artwork as sentences toward a self. The works I create are to be lived with. Enjoy!

“His work assimilates, then transcends, to illuminate abstracted essential truths with a masterful visual language built on line and color.”
