I was born in New York City 1948 and it is where I have spent my entire career living and working. Studying for my BFA and MFA in Painting at Pratt Institute I was fortunate to work under artists Ernest Briggs, Edward Dugmore and George McNeil. I began exhibiting almost immediately after graduation, signing my first gallery contract in 1977 with the Neill Gallery in Soho, where I spent four years. In the succeeding forty years, I worked with many galleries throughout the country topped off by a 20+-year representation with Adamar Fine Arts, in Miami. I have enjoyed over fifty solo exhibits and numerous group shows, my work represented internationally in many private collections, as well as several public institutions.
This new series of abstract paintings, which began in mid-2017, evolved over time and were not only influenced by, but were a radical departure from my long-time painting on construction series, a reality/illusion dynamic addressing the shifting of the Picture Plane painting my imagery on constructions of wood, plexi-glass, louver doors, car-hoods, etc., forming a pictorial/sculptural continuum.
A return to my early roots in abstraction these new works are compositions of form, color and movement based both in nature as well as inspired by man-made cultural influences including neon, reflections, faded walls and billboards, shadows and light on walls.
