"Born in Brooklyn NY in 1932, I graduated from Cooper Union in 1952 and lived in Greenwich Village all of my adult life until my move to Texas in 2022 at age 90. My aesthetic vision had always been deeply rooted in the urban geometry of my surroundings, whether at home or in my travels. The presence of the human hand upon the landscape expresses our eternal yearning for immortality, evidence that says “I was once here”. Subject and process are intertwined in the hand quilting, echoing the celebration of the human hand. While, until now, my focus was on architecture and other man-made structures,, my move to Texas has expanded my vision as I explore the co-mingling of man-made structures and nature. I synthesize and transform the “facts” of the material world to reflect my experience of a particular place. The works are composed of my digitally manipulated photographs, which are printed on fabric and hand-quilted to animate the surface and to reinforce the presence of the human hand"

Tell us how your work is made.
Starting with my own original photographs, I digitally manipulate the images on my computer (geometry, scale, color, etc) print the image on fabric, hand quilt through three layers, gallery-wrap onto canvas stretchers.
