I produce art. The medium is sound and might include paint, photograph, sculpture, music, object, or a combination. I usually work alone, but occasionally in collaboration. My work tells a story. It could be your story.
From the late 1940s through the 1950s the US Government ( and others) conducted a number of nuclear weapons tests polluting our environment and providing an existential threat to humanity. We got this world changing technology all wrong when we weaponized it. This work is an archival photograph from the Bimini tests in 1946. It is printed on canvas, overpainted with oil , and gold leafed. 30"" x 40"" x 2"" completed in 2012
