1969 to 2011
I observe and absorb the environment and issues that surround me. In time, these issues develop a distinct relationship with my thoughts, resulting in a discourse of a profound and meditative nature. The open ended dialogues of such discussion share a presence in my work, without a prejudice and judgment.
