We were encouraged to get out and experience the world. Often I am amazed at how much freedom my rather conservative parents allowed us. Now, as a father of three adult children, I am shocked how the things I did so confound and alarm even me! I attended the University of Florence as a thirteen year old, worked as an archeologist’s assistant (in Greece) when I was seventeen, as an intern at the London Filmmakers Cooperative in my early twenties, a state supported poet in Holland, etc. I am sure this lifestyle motivated me to live and work around the world as a grownup. So London, Amsterdam, Greece, Portugal, Paris, or India was often my address.

TribeLA Magazine Acrostic Interview.2

[hoot_dropcap]Influence: What would you like to share with our audience and what effect do you hope to have on us?[/hoot_dropcap]
I see our human condition as both a cyclical and progressive thing. In order to become more humane, I sense that we must contact and revive our oldest stories and archaic symbols. My painting is a kind of dance told in form and color, which tries to awaken those recurrent impulses that we see throughout our history. I think potent myths are able to stimulate our collective imagination.

[hoot_dropcap]Back: If you could choose a past literary/art/music movement to be a part of, which would you choose?[/hoot_dropcap]
It’s hard to pick any extra special era of artistic movements for me.  I am very attracted to the Modernists. But, I also enjoy Gothic tropes where the imagery is flat and the intention is didactic and simplistic.  The Cycladic period greatly holds my gaze, and like many painters Neolithic cave iconography is fascinating and inspiring. Sometimes I wish I were ten years older so I could have experienced the 50’s in America. And then again, I think the scene in Zurich at Café Voltaire would suit me just fine.
