Bursts of color, many from original Kodachrome transparencies shot in the late '60s in Manhattan at Orange Studio (Madison Ave & 30th Street). Manipulated, cut, super-imposed, re-photographed on an Oxberry camera stand, then digitized and printed on canvas. Surface finished with varnished words and symbols.
Canvases (unique, 54x36 inches) topped by transparent words and symbols which display a nearly hidden but physical affirmation of our thoughts toward the beguiling subject matter and perhaps a wink at our current culture of emojis.
"I make band-aids of color & warmth that help cover up the wounds of our current blunt reality."
