Description

My primary “vehicle” of expression over the years has been an on-going Series of prints and paintings titled "GNOMEGAME". It's guiding CONCEPT relates to the revelation and personification of universal human attitudes ranging from foibles to the darker edges of human nature. My awareness of the particular "attitude" being manifested on the picture plane usually crystallizes as the work unfolds. That is, I don't preconceive.  Perhaps this approach is the result of my early years as an Abstract-Expressionist. I have the greatest faith in intuition and the truth it generates.

"BEHIND THE CURTAIN" is one of a GNOMEGAME sub-series of paintings titled, “Narratives”. It deals with real or imagined events experienced by, usually, comic surrogates. They are, sometimes, storytelling works that are purposely kept enigmatic in order to encourage the viewer's personal interpretation.
