I am very excited to be working again with the local non- profit p:ear. P:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives. Each year their programs serve almost 900 homeless and transitional young people ages 15 to 24.
My Solo exhibition opens October 1st from 6pm -8pm, I will be in attendance. The show will be open by appointment through November.
I will be showing my current work which deals with the underlying connections of what is or appears to be fragmented and my attempt and the ability to make those connections by using instinct and emotion over logic and reason.
“after 25 years of commercial photography studio in frankfurter and after more than 10 years experience with co_works artists in Germany, it is about time the rest of the world to explore. a 4 × 4 Atego seemed suitable, all the facebook artist friends living in the real, and to be taken in remote areas and possibly to work with you. more co_works, books, calendars, couple- and nude shootings, exhibitions are the projects for the coming years (translated from German using google translate)”
