Broken Burned Stolen Defaced
From the earliest days of my career in San Francisco until the most recent work in the Catskills I have both employed, and been plagued by, these four verbs. It is admittedly the approach of an iconoclast, not a traditionalist in the art making process. Although I do maintain a studio “practice,” it is this work that spans an entire career, falling within these categories, that are presented in this exhibition.
