Artist's Statement

Financial crisis! Economic meltdown! Faulty credit default swaps! Hedge fund pandemonium! Zombie banks! Sounds like art to me!

Long before our present fiscal dilemma, I was preoccupied by the world of numbers, money, credit and predatory transactions. I nursed a heroic case of “Math Anxiety” through most of my adult life and only through my art making actions have I come to terms with it. The culmination is a killer credit score (820) and a few series focused on the credit crisis, starring our pals teh big banks.

Its micro and macro economics for this bottom feeder, as our current financial plight has provided me with lots of raw material and subject matter.
