Appreciating diversity is an important challenge for all of humankind. A recurrent theme that drives much of my artwork is the underlying sameness of all people. Our physical form and physiological make-up as well as shape and stature differentiates us from other species. At the same time differences-race, religion, gender, for example-can all contribute to creating a rich and vibrant world that not only co-exists but that can participate in a shared vision for a better world for all. .
Many of my works are based on the replication of a form-multiple times-often, with each form painted a different color The fact that the forms are all the same demonstrates that underneath the veneer we are really all the same. The different colors-all bright and attractive-help to highlight the unique and wonderful differences between us.
My belief in the importance of the survival of all people continues to be the inspiration for new works.
