1. Where and how would you display your work in an ideal situation?
I think that an ideal space is a clean space. You don't want the art competing with the surroundings. White, tall walls like the National Gallery of Art are ideal. Being on Madison Avenue or Rodeo Drive doesn't hurt either!

2. If expository writing is good at elucidating and proving a point and
descriptive geometry gives us the tools by which to map objects in space
in relation to one another, what kind of an apparatus does art afford us?
What does art do best?
Art helps us to connect things. Each reaction is relative to the viewer and how it moves or connects them with the world.

3. What can you expect from your audience/fans/viewing public? What would you
like them to know about your work?
I don't expect anything. I hope that they enjoy the work and it touches them on some level. The point of art is to make people happy--- and that is what I aim to do.

4. Marcel Duchamp said - "Enough with retinal art!" What is your reaction as an artist to this statement?
I can see both sides of this statement---I agree that landscapes, portraits, and realism can be boring, and it has been done for centuries. He is encouraging abstraction (I believe) and to lok at art in a different manner and I think that is admirable as it is the kind of work I do.

5. Do you think that there is still room for art movements in today's
pluralistic climate?
Just as music changes over the years as does art. Would it be strong enough to be considered a movement like Dada,etc? I don't think so. I think we've seen the majority of what art is---we've given that word so much meaning that it ultimately transcends all forms of what art is. I think art will merely 'fit into categories'. Its tough to reinvent the wheel but who knows what the future will hold.

6. What is one question you wished we had asked you about your art? Please
feel free to answer it.
You got me! :) Thank you for your time!
