Our Better Angels.

Artists live where all dreams end. Truth, Illusion are a dance of apparitions. You try to capture them. Smoke and mirrors are what you usually get – sometimes life’s magic.

I remember the story Henry Miller wrote about the angel he painted quite by accident. I never painted an angel. Maybe I’ll find one hiding in my canvas as Henry did. An angel today, a devil tomorrow, nothing unusual for an artist’s studio. That is the sort of place one goes to ponder good and evil and to confront that meeting between thought and instinct, peace and violence, greed and giving, which we all share if we dare. 

After decades of war and recession, discord and intolerance, this exhibit reflects upon the angst of those times and the hopes and dreams for better times to come.
