New York, Gracie Mansion Gallery, An Exploration of the History of Collisions in Reverse, April - May 1986
"Most of my work is about social reaction to the things around me. Anybody who thinks they are going to change the world with one painting is wrong. You end up giving people a focal point for different kinds of energy or ideas, and usually people are repelled or attracted to it. Sometimes, in the process, they can find themselves. "
