Drama long gone, and drawn into the empty scene, moving guardedly beyond unattended crumble and shards of scrap poetry… 


Crawling over trash into a lightless wasteland, dark and dripping grief for a glorious past—‘beauty and sadness’ frame paradox."

One night in a dream, figures moved in like silhouettes. I saw that even with limited information an individual could be known-not as a black hole in a painted environment, but as a real presence. Looking across the room-I see myself, and my work, as subject of my work.  I am an abstract realist, dreaming that I am dreaming.

On unstable ground, during the dismantling of Westinghouse, the panorama of a January sundown surprised me with a condensed autobiography. Three resulting paintings reveal metaphors of personal history and prophecy—honed from the hollow."

For 20 years and counting, I observe the parallels of the mystic art-life with the priesthood in chapters of paintings largely focused inside the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart—seen now on high, above all the rubble.

Born in Manhattan, I look back to the famous skyline from a unique perspective, fresh and forward-looking, beyond the heap of junk.

"WISH YOU WERE HERE"

FEBRUARY 21 - MARCH 2

City|Space

Brava Theater Center
San Francisco, CA

Although often ignored, souvenirs are ubiquitous representations of the places we inhabit, written in the kitschy dialect of snow-globes and postcards. But souvenirs also navigate more intimate geographies, of personal feeling and memory.
Wish You Were Here will re-imagine the souvenir's unique position between landscape, memento, and memory.
Subject: Any aspect or part of the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA

THE LAST WALTZ Paris

"A week in San Francisco for the Band's Last Waltz at Winterland, re-lived at the Paris cinema, and then painted in the New Jersey studio.

On Thanksgiving Day 1976 "THE BAND" held their final concert in San Francisco where they had begun sixteen years before. As guests, my friend Vicki and I were able to watch rehearsals with the greats of rock and roll in an empty Winterland theater the day before the show which was filmed by Martin Scorsese.

Two years after, 'The Last Waltz' was showing in a Paris cinema, offering respite from site-seeing, and 'bringing it all back home.'

The painting, completed in 1981 in New Jersey, is a personal souvenir of a souvenir of some unforgettable San Francisco nights."

CITY|SPACE

is a cultural organization dedicated to exploring the built environment through events and exhibitions in a wide range of disciplines, including design, visual art, cultural landscape research, and film.

CITY|SPACE cuts across disciplinary boundaries to draw on a wide range of work: aesthetic, documentary, architectural, scientific, and political, that converges around the city as we find it, make it, and struggle with it. 

"By engaging Bay Area audiences in complex and challenging questions about the cities we inhabit, we hope to deepen our communities' experience, understanding and stewardship of urban places."

"GET ON THE BUS"

JUNE 16 - JULY 2, 2006

San Francisco, CA

A unique exhibition/event at 2255 3rd St, in San Francisco's Dogpatch district at the convergence
of 3 major bus lines and the city's new Third Street light rail line.

Reproduction of "TO THE POINT"

image129

CITY|SPACE presents selections from around the world for this celebration of the 'lowly bus' to reconsider the experience, culture, and meaning of our nation's least-loved transit mode. 


Stigmatized as the transit of last resort-the realm of the poor, elderly, and infirm-the bus nonetheless moves millions of people every day and now can be found on the cutting edge.


Reproduction of "NIGHT BUS"

image130

GET ON THE BUS includes a multi-media exhibition, an anthology of nonfiction stories, and a series of interventions taken out to the city for both intentional and incidental audiences. 


CITY|SPACE worked with several local agencies, including San Francisco Muni and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, to create original content and cooperative projects.
