“I use images and words to engage viewers in imaginative contemplation about the weirdness and beauty of our brief appearance in the infinity of time. Since 1980 when I began my professional career, I’ve created 1000s of thought-provoking experiences for viewers using video, sculpture, painting, installation, performance, writing, and theater.”
“My work is meant to be thought-provoking and it requests viewer engagement. The imagery or writing is meant to direct the interpretation to a theme but the specifics are left open. Each viewer will use their own life experiences to create their own ideas about what my artwork means or says and that will likely change on the next encounter. In that regard, the viewer becomes a creator when they engage with my artwork.”
