Historical Context:
"The conception for art takes place in dialectic order- there is not true flight out of our own time... The human form is a tantalizing and complex image that has challenged, haunted and eluded me. Its evocative power and social implications have again been the touchstone of my recent work... The central focus of my current paintings and monotypes involves the awkwardness and complexity of ‘adolescence’ with its rituals and relationships. In examining this unwieldy passing from childhood to maturity, from safety to uncertainty, it appears that life is disinterested in designating this experience to specific increments of time."
