Artistic expression is a response to the search for meaning and purpose in life. The great power of art enables us to to speak, whisper, point, connect us to others, and to bridge cultures, time and distance.

"Remnant of the Dark Legion"

I realize this little guy is a bit "out there" but it was great fun to put him together. 

     Again I was inspired by the theme from one of my favorite books. "A Canticle for Leibowitz" tells a cyclical story of how we build a wonderful and technologically complex society and then war against each other and destroy everything.
The wreckage of things we once knew like

electricity, become mysteries. A shopping list found in the dust mistakenly becomes a sacred mythical text. 

      A new generation tries to make sense of the dusty past they inherit and constructs an innocently confused mix of fact and mythology. 

Slowly, progress is made and rediscoveries raise the old technology, which in time become the weapons of the powerful and dangerous and again all is lost - 
a perfect history for mixed media art!

     And a project ideal for a hand tool similar to the one I fashioned Mr Toolman from - can you guess what purpose it had?

“Eye Love U”    
I love typography and coded phrases and symbols that we share across cultures. I
 wanted to do a piece that sits on the street where people can get close and touch it and 

​kind of feel words in their hands and sense the magnitude of words and their power. I think running their hands on this 4 foot tall piece will encourage pedestrians to pause and consider its meaning.
