The artists describe their work as follows:
Each of these pieces compresses a world of movement and color within a powerful framework
that can imply either discipline or repression.
My assemblages represent the relationship between man and nature. Will we be able to maintain a
balanced carbon footprint between our conservation and development that will sustain us into the future?
I like to push the envelope by combining craft skills and industrial materials as the mode and mediums of creating
art. My work is inclusive, a dynamic case of multi-media offering multi-message.
Jazz is what inspires these works. The pieces consist of colorful abstract squares with playful jazzy sticks. The
pieces honor Miles Davis.

These small painting studies of Shukokai Karate practitioners are painted on acrylic sheet.
All of the work has been completed in the last few months and are part of a larger series
of the same theme.
The work in the Fairleigh Flat and Entirely Square brings you within the unpredictability of the predictable. Not only are the
works confined in equal spaces but they demand to be stretched beyond their confinement by creating an illusion that the
flat surfaces are three dimensional. They become "Emotions-in-Motion"
