  Each Lunar Phase and Nano painting captures an imaginary moment of time. The work aims to create several layers of meaning which the viewer can slowly, upon reflection, unravel. Moon shapes, figures, fauna, animals and their environments interact with abstract elements that fuse a narrative of fantasy and reality inspired by the love of nature and concern about environmental issues.
   The multi-media work on paper incorporates photo collage elements in an additive, seamlessly layered process with textured, expressionistic painted surfaces embedded on 300 lb. cold pressed handmade paper. The works on canvas use acrylic paint with many different glazing mediums layered with the paint.
   The theme “Lunar Phase” is inspired by the scientific term Lunar Effect that describes the correlation between specific stages of the lunar cycle and the influence it might have of the behavior of life on Earth. 
From the Lunar Phase series I became interested in how scientists, and researchers are controlling, influencing and developing devices that monitor almost every aspect of our environment. A researcher named Kris Pister dreamed a wild future in the 1990’s in which people would sprinkle the Earth with countless tiny sensors or ‘nanos’ called, “Smart Dust” that would monitor and observe data about people, cities and the natural world.
   My version of these sensors over nature became the Nano Nature Series.
