“Spacetime,” carvings, constructions & collages

My artwork has been motivated by the desire to express an ever-changing inner vision, a vision that is both psychological and spiritual, personal and universal. Highly symbolic, yet at the same time using actual objects and photographs of real objects, I am always trying in my work to get in touch with and express the mystery that is at the heart of reality. Death, grief, healing and joy are some of the themes towards which I find myself gravitating. These are themes I daily encounter in my professional life as a general internist physician. “Spacetime” refers to the physical world in which we live. It is a physics term that recognizes the interdependence of space and time. This physical, “Spacetime” world may be part of something much bigger and these art works are part of an ongoing meditation on that theme.
