Group Show " Dear Geometry" at Jancar Jones, Los Angeles, California

The removal of the figure from this recent body of work is a purposed decision, as the artist elects to concentrate on the atmospheric possibilities of painting.

Opening Reception: Saturday October 20th, 2012, 7-10pm.
"Drown me in pictures like Marsden, make me a radical artist in the conventional sense.
Give me the intelligence of a Wells. God, Ford is so far beyond him that what Wells says really sounds sensible.
Must it be a civilization of fatigued spirits? Then give me Ford. My God it is too disgusting." -William Carlos Williams, from The Great American Novel
