Diebenkorn Memorial Teaching Fellowship at The San Francisco Art Institute.
His work for many years, was an open-ended dialogue with the viewer,
deconstructing scientific metrics and the methodologies of modernism. This subject and the disassembly of conventions, has recently been supplanted by a thorough investigation of historic and clandestine conspiracies. The control of information and the fracturing of an individual's psyche, are equally considered and taking the form of modernist standards. A quest for an aesthetic truth in a world where truth is selective and redacted.
