Several people have asked me what am I up to these days? I dont have a ready reply, but I embarked writing about my pictures and paintings a few months ago, and as I found out, I am now OVERWHELMED! So yes, I have embarked on this because I like the pictures and paintings I have been fortunate enough to be around in this life. My first thought is that I might try and create a new body of work, but no, I always responded by not confronting, fully, the images around me. This is perhaps reflecting my life in general. Not confronting. My current efforts revolve around a series of 4x5 images created in the early 1990’s, the current-ish digital images from Europe (2003-2010 pre-stroke) and the third aspect, is my paintings. I have discovered that I have TOO much to say, and it might be several years in the making, but what the hell. This makes sense to me. I have made copious images in the past, why not reflect back on these? Writing has always been a desire of mine, even though I am not articulate in what I wish to say. But that being said, creating the images in the first place and then being able to reflect on these images and WHY I made these in the first place. So as a colleague said, I will say what I want, and let everybody else sort it out.
