As I travel, I am intrigued by the surfaces that surround us. It could be a ceiling, a floor, most often it is a wall. My intent is to interpret these surfaces in a way that will evoke a response in the viewer. There might be words, remnants of notices, or playbills. There might be layers that are being exposed because of age or climate. There surfaces are a history lesson a warning of what may be coming, or what has been. A surface can be elegant or tawdry, happy or sad, substantial or crumbling. The response to the art will vary from viewer to viewer.
