Statement, 1978

Most of my works are concerned with inner frontiers, with the unfathomable, with new growing awareness of man's relationship to a larger, all-encompassing reality and to his or her part in this reality.

In many of the pieces I hope to lead the viewer into this inner reality by forming a bridge between the different worlds – the world of the intellect and the world of the intuitive mind.

Sometimes I create cities or people in business suits with briefcases – symbols of the intellectual or rational mind, and bring them into settings inhabited by magical beasts or horned devas – symbol of the intuitive world within.

It is my hope that the viewer will be stimulated into further exploring the mysterious world of his own as he enters my art.
