Artist Statement

In the dawn of prehistory, when I was younger, I spent a summer in a heightened state of awareness sans drugs. I was so exhilarated by the visual world around me, I borrowed a camera and started
taking pictures of fields of daisies, Japanese Beetles, dew on the grass. Later I had a series of explicit dreams . In the dreams, the photographs I had taken arrived in collaged compositions that actually had a form content relationship. I was not an artist at the time, nevertheless I printed and cut the photos, ( pre Photoshop ) into these compositions. Recently I decided to return to work with those images. After wasting a lot of paper and telling my self to keep trying to get the technique right, I produced these lithographs.
