In my recent work I have explored the idea of layering, recycling and reinterpretation. Included within this series are collage and paint, works on paper and wood, and the use of imagery of post war American ideals and consumerism. Some ideas spring forth from a cliché or concept that expresses / suggests itself in allegory and rhythm.
