  • 10"x 30" Oil on canvas The ancient Ashanti mask comes from the Akan people  in Ghana. They are used in events such as initiation ceremonies and masquerade performances. This is a two part painting.
  • The legend of the origination of the Akua'ba doll comes from the story of a woman named "Akua" (many variations of the name are found as there are many variations of the spelling of "akua'ba") who could not get pregnant and went to a local diviner or priest and commissioned the carving of a small wooden doll. She carried and cared for the doll as if it were her own child, feeding it, bathing it and so on. Soon the people in the village started calling it "Akua" "ba" - meaning "Akua's child", since "ba" meant child. She soon became pregnant and her daughter grew up with the doll. This is one of my small works series.
  • 10"x 30" This painting was inspired by the BASONGE healing mask used by designated healers that brought with them years of experience in herbs and medicines (much like modern doctors of today) and this mask was worn to ensure a positive image to aid in faith and assurance of the skills of the wearer. The identifiable lines on this healing mask are abstracted and carried into and around the image creating motion and a sense of infinity as the eye is captured and begins to travel around and around. This feeling captures the notion that the healing expertise began at the beginning of time and will continue into the future of this planet. In this mask is such knowledge and healing experience that carries through many generations and is only now beginning to be recognized by modern man. This is a two part painting.
  • The Mende  people are located in Sierra Leone and also include a small group in Liberia; they speak a language of the Mande branch of the Niger-Congo family. I have captured the traditional rolls in the carvings of their masks and of course added my artistic license of Plastic Space abstraction to this two part composition.
  • It was fascinating to watch our waiter make guacamole right at our table while in Mexico. He used a mortar and pestle just like in the painting and dramatically whipped it all together. The whole experience was inspiring!
  • This painting is the first of a series of musical pieces inspired by a juried show at the Hammonds House Museum Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme of the show is to be "From Songhai to Symphony Hall". As I researched to find out a bit about music in the Songhai people of Africa, I discovered that it was once the greatest empire in all of Africa and greatly influenced by Islam. The music is centered from one particular instrument called a Njarka. It is a large gourd with a small hole carved into it and attached by a long neck with one string. This instrument is used to center the basic beat of all other instruments that were used in the development of music in the Songhai region. This basic one string and one beat brought to mind something the great Dizzy Gillespie once said, that "without a back beat, you ain't got no jazz" And here is proof that there has always been a back beat in our early history of music all the way to today.
  • Medium: Oil on archival canvas Size: 24" x 36" This is one of two paintings reflecting the basic 4 elements using the models and the colors in their garments to carry this message. We are basically made up of these 4 elements which ties us to this planet and the universe. In the background are shapes with African influenced designs.
  • Medium: Oil on archival canvas Size: 10" x 10" This mask is from the South Sea Islands representing the strong warrior as a form of protection. I used the format of this mask and took artistic license using the in and out play of light and depth to create a painterly representation.
  • Medium: Oil on archival canvas Size:  22" x 28" This mask is from the South Sea Islands representing the strong warrior as a form of protection. I used the format of this mask and took artistic license using the in and out play of light and depth to create a painterly representation. This is part of the Maruvian Mask series rendered in the style of Plastic Space.
  • Medium: Mixed Media on canvas Size: 18" x 24" She is one of the first Queens and I used  interferon paint for the background creating a changing color effect. It changes from blue to a pearl white when viewed from different angles. She reflects the fall colors in her drape of the different shades of brown, rust and orange. If you look close you might find other shades there too.
  • Medium: Litho print Image size:  16"x 12" Paper size 20"x 16"
  • Medium: Oil on archival canvas Size: 30" x 40" This painting is part of my "Atlanta" series that I was inspired to do shortly after relocating to Georgia from Southern California. I was fascinated by the many trees and woods with flowing water in the area. It is something quite different from the semi desert living in southern California. The South represents a lot of heritage for my family and getting to know it is a blessing. I consider this painting to be one of my masterpieces.
  • Medium: Oil on canvas Size: 16" x 20" This is one of my early Plastic Space figurative pieces. This predates the use of masks in the background. I wanted to create a Madonna and child design to use for licensing.
  • Medium: Oil on archival canvas wrap Size: 30" x 40" Playa Buffet is part of my "I want to go back to Playa Del Carmen Series" that has been a recurring theme in my recent still life's. It is the warm tropical feel that these Plastic Space figurative abstracts project. One can almost feel the Spanish tile floor under your bare feet as you select a morning fruit dish before heading out to the beach.
  • Medium: Oil on archival canvas wrap Size: 24" x 30" Many sharecroppers had the whole family involved with harvesting the crops. Even the matriarch with her cane is watching the youngest of the family in the fields. For this painting I intentionally left the features vague in the figures to capture more of the atmosphere and harsh conditions of the moment.
  • Medium:  Original oil on archival gallery wrap canvas Size: 30" x 40" I was inspired by the images of the children's crusade and wanted to express the energy and struggle the children endured to keep standing by clinging together as a determined group despite the high power blasts of the fire hoses. Rendered in oil on canvas, I used more of an impressionistic approach to keep the identities of the children vague so more focus is on the emotion of the event. This event actually took place in front of a row of buildings on a city street. At first, I had the buildings behind the group but it seemed to diminish the power of the emotion I wanted to create. So I took them out and placed the group in a wooded isolated scene. I wanted to create a feeling of isolation, that there was no help for them and the event was dire and they had to rely on each other to remain upright. The trees created more of an atmosphere of a place where lynching happens or the isolation of jail cell bars.This painting represents the unity needed to succeed and without unity we are bound to fail.
