Why this subject, this moment, this light, this composition?

Has the world always been this way, or is it changing?

If the viewer continues on, without a state of wonder, or of wondering, has the artist failed?

I am in the process of becoming a multivalent artist. I am assisting and directing a series of drone videos with an eye to utility and beauty. I am currently experimenting with binaural and multi-channel sound to create projected environments and vignettes. I continue to experiment with ink, paint, assemblage, and multi-media to create new lighter (and darker) worlds.

"From the Sea of Stories" will be at the Rhythmix Gallery Show (Alameda) titled "Diaspora Voiced" September through October. An audioloop installation curated and collaged from podcasts recorded at 826 Valencia's Message in a Bottle project.
You can support me (like many artists) by purchasing works that you like. I certainly do not rely on government funding, because there is none.
