The artists images have historical
background in the landscapes of Cezanne; expressionist woodcuts; works
of Lyonel Feininger; and the cubistic undertakings of Braque, Picasso,
and Juan Gris. Futurist paintings by Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carra,
and Gino Severini provide additional sources for investigations into
simultaneity of time, motion, and altering vantage points.
The artist has also been influenced by the rural
settings of his youth, where agricultural activities create a patterned
layout of the terrain. Varied crop rotation, planting and cultivation
provide a patchwork of numerous bright greens against earth tones
while short vegetation is set against clusters of trees. These features
are presented in a quasiaerial perspective within each work.
Works by the artist/printmaker encompass the full range of printmaking
