Crossing the Nocturne
"I am an accomplished painter who began a dialogue with the video medium when I was a professor of art at the University of New Mexico.
My journey of discovery started when I began building elaborate kinetic sets in order to video capture a large range of displacement. Several artist teams were utilized to simultaneously charge the rectilinear set with differentiated events.
Recently I have created images that could be considered expressions of mysterious human circumstances.These high action works also emulate some of the formal traditions of abstract expressionist painting, imagist idea constructs and contemporary performance.
The Nocturne theme alludes to a person fitfully sleeping and wakening, while being enveloped by an odd menagerie of attendants through the night dreaming sequence."
