Regarding the paintings…

The “childlike” 18×72 inch panels emerged in 1984 in a barn on the Eagle Ranch in Caspar, CA (thank you Lisa Lebow for your many visits) after two years of therapy during my recovery from a major cocaine and alcohol binge in Montecito, CA (1980-1982). The paintings a celebration that I survived.

The abstract-geometric-minimal work, few colors, few shapes, usually square, emerged after a radical dream I had where a flying saucer landed and three Gumby like beings came up to me and handed me what looked like a black typewriter case which contained the “codex keys to the infinite”.

The sculpture was inspired by a dream I had after viewing a documentary of the Kogi Indians in South America. I will tell you more about that tale some time…
