Working Title "Leadership"

Above is a record shot of a very recent painting, a collaborative effort working with Dr. Ju.

If I am not mistaken, it is an updated variation on a old Chinese poem, praising a leader for service well officiated, and at the same time, reminding the leader of the importance of future humility and service to the community.

This detail of the painting shows the layering of images, found so often in our work. More detectable to the in-person viewer, and less so to the viewer on the web, is the under painting. The original layer lays out a kabbalistic map of how energy flows in the universe. Over this is the poem, focused on the world we live in.

The work weaves as one, and renders an intercultural exploration.

Looking At Glass, Through Glass

In passing, an object d'art, in this case with one of my favorite color combinations, red, orange, and yellow. An artisan has brightened our world with beauty.

Digitize and Enhance

I can't resist the urge to lay a photo down on its side, and digitally enhance the image. The color made me do it.

Shutter Release

The Francesca Woodman exhibit at SFMOMA is one of the most engaging and honest photography exhibits I have ever seen. Soon to be seen at the Guggenheim.

Break For Sculpture

This work entitled "Throwback", by Tony Smith, is on display at SFMOMA.

Want to counter the mayhem and horror? Create that which is beautiful, and elevate our world.

For Publication

I had the good fortune to photograph one of the Pascal Calculators, a work of true genius and inspiration by Blaise Pascal, dating back to the mid 17th century. Yes, it was a bit nerve racking to examine, handle, and stage the object, being truly priceless, but exciting and fun, all at the same time. Two of my photos appear in the Museum Henri-Lecoq publication, "Les Machines Arithmetiques De Blaise Pascal." The book cover image appears at top.
