Welcome to my on-line gallery. You can view the various themes in my work by clicking on subject choices in the ‘Categories’ section of the right side-bar. My work is shown in Toronto at Propeller Gallery, 30 Abell Street. It can be found in various private collections in Houston, Montgomery, Toronto, Vancouver, and Perth (Australia); and in the collection of Etherstane Development Corporation,Vancouver.
My images ‘Kasbahs’ were published in the Canadian Architect magazine in 1970. The catalogue of my solo exhibition, ‘Through a Glass Darkly’, was acquired by the reference library of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Some pictures demand to be taken, for their inherent strength or associations. Others have to be worked for. The products are sequences of images illustrating change over time; series of images which collectively show the character of a place, event, or experience; and single telling images. Art is as I find it, an expression of the moment, or of the infinite.
An education based on the Bauhaus method biases my photographic work toward graphic potential, collage, and abstraction, with a focus on cities and urban change. It addresses material as diverse as middle-America, art spaces, commerce in contemporary China, metropolitan places, and people in cities. Images of, or from, the modern city present an archeology of urban evolution. The images explore the boundary between figuration and abstraction, with influences from the history of 20th century painting.
