Artist Statement

 

 The newest images are of an ongoing series called

BIOLGRAPHY, an almagam of  Biology and Autobiography,

They are all rendered  in ink, gouache, watercolor on 8" X (" inch Japanese Shikishi boards. They are meant to be a kind of Brain Puzzle or more acurately an outlet for my life long thoughts, motifs, interests ,dreams,or whatever. Although they may be grouped according to the Four Basic Elements ,each image is self-contained meant to interact randomly and displayed in various ways. Most images are identifiable but in it's entirity ( whenever that is ) the mosaic of panels is non-linear and non-narrative.
