This exhibition includes a collection of his elegant abstracts created from salvaged scrap metals and high-relief collages. His three dimensional wall pieces take center stage in the show and feel a bit like dances and music floating along.

He is a singer/songwriter in the (punk) band BLOWTORCH and makes sound collage improvisation with fellow artist and musician Tom Lawson in the collaboration known as RECon.
