installations, drawings, and photography have been shown and collected by such institutions as The Museum of Modern Art New York and the Musem Ludwig Cologne. In Italy he has participated in the Venice Biennale and The Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto.
My work has involved the use of "Mark Making" in the creation of site specific installations in architectural settings. By using materials as varied as Boun/True Fresco and cliché-verre, the installations address the use of aesthetictformal elements as they effect the meanings of works of art. By incorporating the architectural elements of the site i.e. by using the wall as both support for objects and the skin of the room, the works direct the viewer to consider the experience of art as a totality. Color, which under traditional applications has come to signify emotive values in some aesthetic usages, can also be used to articulate the form of the work as it delineates space in both its physical sense, as it reiterates the surface of the wall and as it conveys the illusionistic qualities of a painted/photographic surface.
|The goal of the Artist is to produce Art that creates a context.
Without context neither knowledge nor understanding can be reached.
Art remains, even in the late 20th century, beyond the official recognition of merit. Take for example the exclusion of the visual arts from consideration for the Nobel Prize.
This lack of inclusion is not important for what it intends but rather for what it includes.
Modernism has maintained its influence because it was one of the first true manifestations of the international ideal of a unified and shared culture.
This sharing is the meeting point of late 20th century Western Art.
