In the Studio with Larry Silver
“My work is composed of oil paint mixtures, graphite and pastel, which interlock on the clay surface of the painting's panels. The face of each painting is a delicate skin that is partially stripped away to expose references to diagrammatic notations, molecular bundles, Venetian walls. Complex drawing may be constructed, erased, reconstructed and then partially erased again suggesting a collection of time worn, abstract graffiti. This grouping of translucent applications of marks, drips, pours and sandings possesses the simultaneity of appearance and dissolve.”

Some include: Lesley Heller Gallery, NYC; Laura Henry Gallery, Santa Monica, CA; Rose Burlingham, NYC; Basel Art Fair, Switzerland; Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, NY; PS122 NYC; Barbican Art Center, London; Curt Marcus Gallery, NYC; PPOW Gallery, NYC; Lannon Gallery, NYC; Indianapolis Museum of the Arts, IN, Centro Mascarella, Bologna, Italy.
