I exhibited in some early 1980 (like January 1980) shows on the Lower East Side, the Real Estate Show, helped set up and curated and exhibited in the first ABC No Rio show, and the following Times Square Show. I proceeded to get politically active, with anti racism and anti imperialism as a foundation. I did a series of bas relief portraits of revolutionaries. I also did some abstract work and made a series of wood boxes, carved and not carved over a number of years.These were made for friends mainly as wedding gifts.  Some of this work is already posted, with more to come. It is since about October 2011 that I have begun making Art, again. Abstract art that is. Much of my Art has been in appreciation of past and present Artists, those who have managed to spend most of their time, daily, in exploring their creativity. Partly as a critique of the market, and mostly as a take off point and as a meditation on others’ explorations.

I will be posting some short videos I’ve made, as well as pictures of wood projects: coffins, boxes, gazeboes… and other Art so revisit occasionally for new work and new rants. There is a RSS link to make it easier.

December 2013    Well, I haven’t posted any of that stuff, but I did just hang the 2013 Ceres show, as you may have seen as you logged on.

September 2015. None yet, but preparing for this December’s Ceres show. Shaved my beard. Sitting 30 minutes every day, 5 or 6 of 7. 35 year retrospective, most ambitious show, with a postcard even. Reaching out to ABC to donate posters.
