The Berlin Series,



The modern architectural elements of the Libeskind building comprise the zinc fa├žade, the Garden of Exile, the three Axes of the German-Jewish experience, and the Voids. Together these pieces form a visual and spatial language rich with history and symbolism. They not only house the museum with its exhibits, but they also provide visitors with their own unique experience as they walk through the spaces.
          ( I cut an paste the above so I should give them credit but I can't find it; thanks, sorry:)

Fold Paintings 2008-present

A group of paintings I have been working on for several years which I call  "Fold Painting", continues to expand.  Ten or so are finished and another dozen are in various stages of completion.  This is an ongoing project and the work is difficult to exhibit because each work needs to be handled in order to see and interact with the various choices of views.  Each painting has at least multiple ways to view it and up to over a dozen different views.  Watch a video ;  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxkn_HUB3zA&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL

This example is called "Pinkeye", my reference to the bird flu pandemic scare of 2008. It is presented by this cross shape and opens from that point as follows.
