I took children's classes at the Chicago Art Institute, and at the Kansas City Art Institute and the Nelson-Atkins Gallery in Kansas City while in highschool--majored in art at Wichita State University, before leaving for Philadelphia in 1964, where I continued to paint, and built a pottery shop, where I made functional pottery for 8 years.
It was another 40 years before I found myself in a place where I again had space and time to make art. In a collective called the Ox, an unfinished warehouse on N. 2nd Street, I began assembling pieces of street trash, found objects: works of bricolage I call, Recyclations, a portmanteau for 'recycle,' and 'transformation.' The numbers on my work all date from that summer at the Ox, July, 2012.
From imagination, and the detritus of capitalist decay, I deconstruct the visual in search of vision for a post-capitalist future.
