'Concerto Grosso 10.4', 2010: "Come Down. Come down. Why dost Thou hide thy face?", though written by the American poet, James Wright (1927-1980) in different context, this concerti grossi may supply a partial visual answer to the question asked. A musical form common to the Baroque period, played by full orchestra contrasting solos by a small group of soloists, the title is also a pun on the double meaning of gross. The visual world for me is either couched in terms of beauty, ugliness (and all between), a cartoon, or music, each occupying a credible space in the works of humanity.

A native of Baltimore, MD, N.Y.C. has been my home for more than half my life. Four plus decades my artistic acts have passed through the glass eye of fine-arts photography. Most recent series of works are from the 'EquivalencE' series, an outgrowth of 'Synergi3s of Confluence' (SynCon), a continuing series. The central subject-matter are that shared space humanity & Nature inhabit. Such juxtapositions will oft result in foretelling ways, at times they will speak to formalities of esthetics, and others a more humorous narrative is close at-hand, all-the-while the relationship between Nature/humanity is context. Visual results are never passive, as these relationships are manifest within an atmosphere of correspondence. While the SynCon works rely on: a process of repurposing the original image via: duplication, selective cropping, and seamless reuniting along a common edge, whereas the EquivalencE works rely on the singular original image. Aspirations are two-fold: an engaging work of fine-art, and a redefining of the relationship between humanity & Nature to one of partnership.
