Artist Statement

 These works are part of an extensive series of objects and paintings  

that embody William Wordsworth's  "Prelude." The look of the work was 
inspired in part by a photograph I saw in the New York Times in the 
days following 9/11. It was of an office in which everything was 
covered by grey ash so that ordinary things like desks and computers 
took on the aspect of an ancient site exhumed. As I have worked on my 
"Prelude" project I have come increasingly to see it as something as 
nearly post-apocalyptic as that photograph but with culture, itself, 
in the form of poetry settling like ash over everything. The dense 
patterns of lines and letters that cover all my surfaces make the 
actual poem impossible to read but I feel that I honor it, 
nevertheless, through an act of penitential diligence.
