Over the past three years I have focused on what I consider significant social and political issues. This was after many years of abstract painting. Events in the world and in this country reached a point where I felt I had to attempt a more representational and meaningful approach. At this point in 2017, I've completed four series, each with a distinct format and content. The image above is from an exhibit in September, 2016 at "Artworks" in Trenton, New Jersey. Each of these series is discussed in the section, "Artist Statement".
