that same year where I continue to reside on the Upper West
Side. After several years of producing realistic botanical studies, I became drawn to abstract painting while simultaneously exploring ceramic sculpture. I've come full circle with a return to
representational botanical, figurative and portrait painting.
Like generations of artists before
me, I am drawn to the human form to personify classical ideals of beauty, balance and harmony. As a gay man and artist, I
celebrate the human body with an unapologetic and clear queer sensibility.
I was represented by the Amos Eno Gallery in NYC from 1989 to 1995,
and the Cortland Jessup Gallery, Provincetown, MA, from 1991 to 1997. Several of my penis paintings were included in
the feminist exhibition “True Phallacy: the Myth of Male Power” at the Michael Clark Gallery in Washington, D.C.
in 1994 resulting in images of my work being published in the Italian publication, L’espresso, and Penthouse Magazine.
Two of my paintings and several ceramic pieces are included in the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art collection with one painting
featured in their 2009 exhibition and catalogue, “Treasures of Gay Art from the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation.”
In 2019, my work was included in 2 group shows at the Blackbird Gallery
in Chelsea, NYC, and in 2020 I participated in the pop-up exhibition "Uncensored: Queer Art" in March, and "Works
At Home" at ARTpartmentNYC in October, both in Brooklyn.
