Born 1955, Ridgewood, New Jersey, USA
Lives and works in Athens, Ohio, USA
“My work explores themes of time/space and the nature of representation as a shared experience. I create images that thrust the viewer into an active relationship with an otherwise static picture. My subjects are observed from an oblique aerial angle or from an objective distance, placing the viewer in the position of the omniscient narrator. Within this framework, themes of personal interaction and the relationship of people with their environment are explored. I work primarily in the media of etching and mezzotint enjoying the process that permanently fixes these images into a metal surface.”
