Impressionist Collage  35x39x3,  acrylic/paper/canvas on wood support, 2015.

Prints from impressionist masterpieces mounted on backing of varying thickness, then cut into pieces, mounted on a canvas-covered wood support, painted and distressed to the point of being half recognizable, half abstract. Approaching the piece, well-known images from the museums begin to emerge as if from memory. A tribute.

Softened Space  29x41x5, oil on aluminum mounted on canvas over a wood support, 2013.

A deep relief construction composed of aluminum formed into boxes, mounted, painted with oils and lovingly worked over with a sledge hammer. The stripes are two differing reds, a dark blue and a dark green. It has nothing whatsoever to do with a flag, they are just stripes. The effect is to soften space itself.
