Lot Essay


'He seeks to lure us ever more deeply into the flux of time and the gaps of space by drawing the viewer into the work of art and drawing the work of art into the field of the viewer... Within his frame of reference, time is no longer a prison from which we seek to escape but is the vital medium of life itself' 
- M.C. Taylor
