1. How did I first meet Harry
I don’t remember the exact time and place that I met Harry but it had to be soon after Cathy met Harry. Cathy and I lived on the same floor our freshman year at Pratt and we became friends. In our sophomore year, Cathy and I were roommates so I suppose I’ve known Harry for about 50 years.
2. About my work.
If you live in the suburban countryside on New Jersey you have to do a lot of driving in order to do anything. It is during those routine trips that I travel through the landscape that I paint. An awareness of the light, color, form, space, energy, etc. would be common to any artist as they move through the environment. But it calls me, and I can’t help being drawn to paint the sensuous light as it sneaks around a tree or dusts the top of a cluster of weeds. And then, while I’m am working, the painting becomes about something else.
In 2003, 2009, and 2013 I had one person shows at the Fischbach Gallery, NYC
In 1979 and 1982 I had one person shows at the Adler/Castillo Gallery in Caracas, Venezuela
Before, after and between I have been:
An art teacher in Newark, NJ
A shop owner
A textile designer
A property manager
A project manager (hard hat) on a number of construction sites
A project development manager
A faux finisher
