'Structural Acclaim', 2012: This Frank Gehry residential structure in lower Manhattan, is surely destined to become one of the iconic elements of the New York City skyline. The undulating stainless facade is a light bending feature that impart a new structural identity, depending on the time of day it is viewed. Nothing added, nothing subtracted, this is a strait image that has been duplicated, and remarried along the common edge, the SinCon (Sinergi3s of Confluence) process. The existing visual elements provide a sense of surprise, abstraction, and location. The small golden figure, with out stretched arms, along the bottom edge is the architectural finial atop the main court house in lower Manhattan.
This work is included as a way of discouraging the idea that the red form in the SinCon image was an added element (an understandable perception), indeed it is the corner of a sign posted in proximity to both of these views. This singular work, entitled 'Singularities', visually speak to: singularities of architectural forms, cloud, color, and compositional shapes.

A native of Baltimore, MD, Ive made N.Y.C. my home for more than half my life. I occupy a space between a world as it is, and one cloaked in personal aspirings of a world where the tension fraught relationship between Nature & humanity may evolve to one guided more by long-term possibilities of preservation, rather than a short-sighted possibility of profit. Contrasts of Nature & humanity often join forces in ways that are prophetic as to the conceptual gulf separating the two. These tensions are primary to my efforts at creating a visual discourse, one where what is, is matrix to possibilities of what might be. Visual formalities, and narrative content are not mutually exclusive, but form an osmotic linking of the two. While Nature & humanity form concerns primary to this presentation of works, some embrace subject matter beyond such issues.
