    — David

  • There's something interesting about the spaces between the bottle caps, something about seeing the wall supporting the beauty.

    — Dan

  • I am reminded of the works of Klimpt. Luxurious fabrics coupled with the ordinary moments of life. I love seeing the mundane transformed into something precious. A reminder also that one person's trash is another's treasure.

    — Anita

  • Heavy matters have many parts. But they can appear weightless depending on how you hang it. The wall pieces are like battle shields or chainmail rendered decorative.

    — Buzz

  • I'm sure this connection has been made before. His work evokes fabric and textile construction.
