Catalogue Note

"Since my early years until now, the natural world and its visual wonders and horrors – man-made devices and their mind-boggling engineering feats and destructive abominations, elusive human nature and its multiple ramifications from the sublime to unbelievable abhorrences – to me are all one. It is in the spirit of this feeling that the primary influences of my work have occurred."
