Artist's Statement

How did I get here? Biking in from the Island at thirteen to the last stop on the F train to lurk Canal Street and the Village. Bound for the west coast as soon as possible... Trains, trucks, boats, ships, cranes & crawlers. Rigging, salvage, towing, steel, timber, rock & dirt... Cities, crowds and faces. All the while, photographing & painting like mad to celebrate it all. More to follow...
