"Morality Tales "

" Morality Tales" are a series of transparencies and paint on worked aluminum.
....and I supose that is where my visual stories begin;  with an image, or a setting, or a person and then a story emerges, collaged and painted, and carved into

More Morality Tales

“More Morality Tales” are archival pigment prints, digitally created from my files, and some with painted mats.
I use only my own photographs; the particular quality of the photographs are integral to and the dominant quality of the images.
 
"Morality Tales" are my visualizations of the various facets of the  human dilemma. Vanity, pride, passion, greed, ambivalence.

I was raised on the Greek myths, and Grimms & Anderson's fairy tales, and I suppose that is where my visual stories began.

Particles All and other Invisible Phenomena

 
 
PARTICLES  ALL
 
This work attempts to explore visually and poetically, what 
can only be understood mathematically and cannot be seen by the eye at all.
 
 After a career of photographing people, places and things, I rediscovered my interest in abstraction, as well as a delight in exploring the place where physics and eastern philosophy intersect. These images are not illustrations; rather they explore such statements as “It has been concluded that the visible universe represents only a small part of the universe. The rest is formed by an invisible substance called dark matter. It’s existence has been suggested by experimental evidence, yet it’s characteristics remain unknown.”
These images, particles or pearls tossed across the cosmos, wonderlands of theory, are an attempt to translate that theory into poetic imagery.
The work consists of archival pigment prints 51x35, and painted and worked aluminum with transparencies.



All the things we cannot see .The virus,  the lies, the illusions.I started this series in march 2020.As I progressed with this thought I  included images from the "Just Before Times".
What Started as minimalist has evolved, and other images drawn in, and color is back.
Glass beads and oil paint on worked aluminum. Sizes range from 12x16 to 36x36.

Lost In the Cosmos

A commision by Peggy Fox from the Maryland Transit authority.
In creating and designing this ten foot by twohundred foot publick mural, I wanted to give people something to think about as they waited for the Train. I ecided to make a visual toy of travel. I layered images and patterns, intersecting planes and fractured dimentions. The viewer, like Alice in wonderland, is drawn into  a story of star dancers, an elopement  on the subway, and a cow jumping over the moon.

I collaged my own photographs with star maps, and had 30x40"black and white  prints produced. I then painted the prints, which were then scanned, screened and fired on 4x10 foot porcelaine panels. This resulted in a permanent wall, resistant to damage by the elements and cleaning.

I collaborated with the architectual/ engineering team from the initital planning stages, integrating the work into the architectural design.

13 Ways of Looking

In China I took eight photographs of goldfish swimming, swirling and swarming for food.  Recalling Wallace Stevens' "13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird", I combined those images 13 different ways to express 13 interior states.

Ten of the 13 images are shown.  Additional images available upon request.

Spain From the Train and Other Landscapes

 
This series began after I developed a  love of photographing through windows of moving vehicles. While unsuccessful at shooting from a car, I took these images  either from the window of an airplane, or from the window of a train.  A viewpoint  that reveals a narrative, a patterning of the land, and  the freedom of applied color.
. The photographs themselves are the sort of images I delight in finding.
