TARGET SERIES: 1960 – 69
My work habits and conceptual thrust are deeply rooted in the notion that working within a series is the best road for me to travel as an artist. Not only does a series provide continuity of thought, it dictates how I approach my work. When I arrive at a concept I want to develop, I impose certain restrictions of format and technique that guide each and every thought in the process. That combination of concept and dedication to its development provides a map for many interesting stops along the road. Sometimes it ends up being a short trip. And sometimes the journey is long with much to explore. There are even times when I want to return to a particular point on that map and re-explore it.
