THE POLYOPTICAL - COMBINATORIAL ART

The two images above represent my primary pursuits as an artist; sculpture and painting. Each discipline invites a range of investigation, and subsequently, expression. That expression is, to my way of thinking, the creation of a unique optically convincing space; that is the artist's particular invention. Narratives, images and 'function' seem to be influenced by local, culturally determined needs.
"Formagiovanni". A sculpture of carved Walnut, 27"H, with added color, employs 'wrong' perspective as an illusionistic, optical conceit.
"Woodstock, Chesnut Hill". An image of a stream and woods, 22"H., is painted in oil on panel, it employs a naturalistic perspective and painterly method.
