Ready to Hang

She looks up at us, and we're looking down; but that implies nothing about anything other than the position of a moment--and moments are what its all about.

Enameled, brightly, on thick, black paper with very rough edges--framing enhances the streetlife "feelness" with black on black on black.

The grind and excitement of near-constant movement has given me a stormy and tense relationship to space, and to movement within that space. From walled-off Berlin, foggy Vienna, quaint Alpine villages, and myriad boxy American cities--each environment adding something subtle to my creations. I often pose the philosophical question--why would a thing need to represent another thing, if its own beauty in form should be recognized? I crave tension--seeking truth through examination of angles, trial--error, and the narrative that develops visually through the "indelibility" of contact between pen and paper.
