1997-2004 Portfolio

Prototypes, my Rome: Most of this work was in response to research in Italy, where I was amazed by seeing painting in its context of architecture. The architectural proportions and shapes relate to the human scale to give a context for the  images painted on the surface.

Remains of War:  During this time, I was researching the Normandy region of France to document the remaining modular cast concrete German war bunkers that were used to occupy France during WWII. I took hundreds of photos of the bunkers, of eroding boats, and made paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture models from the images I saw.
