Art from a Humanist Perspective
Through my art, as well as my teaching, I explore the ambiguities of human experience. Featuring sites in my (often maligned) city of Vallejo, CA, these works may address certain social and economic realities. However, these are also psychological sites, where the internal and external meet.
I admire these unyielding, quiet fixtures, stubbornly rooted in uncelebrated spaces. These places sometimes beckon, and sometimes keep the viewer at a distance. They exist for me as sites for personal reconnaissance. RepresentationAndrea Schwartz Gallery, San Francisco: http://www.asgallery.com/Personal Philosophy
I celebrate humble but emphatic skepticism, and support the spirit of inquiry.
I oppose the exaltation of unquestioning faith at the expense of reason and the right to dissent.
I believe in the moral imperative of social justice and equality.
