DESCRIPTION: Posters, Prints, & Multiples, Unframed, Reduction woodcut and gravure etching

ARTIST STATEMENT: These woodcuts express the abstract geometric shapes and distant configurations of our architecture in the Northeast. Upon sea waters of estuaries and harbors is mirrored the play of interweaving lights and darks of buildings and piers crowned by steeples and mast tops. I am fascinated by the ghostly quality of buildings looming out of the mists, endowed with strength and endurance. For me, historic architecture represents a bridge between one life-span into another.
