good fences


Good fences make good neighbors. In leaded glass, there is the lead, and then there is the glass. The glass is luminous, glowing, often changing. The lead: dense, solid, stable. Together – upon occasion – the partnership can really be something. It’s kept me interested for over 40 years.


Now, about the images I choose: In some ways, everyone is a product of their times. My time happened to be the late 1960’s into the 70’s. Severe abstraction was strong then, and I certainly responded. A black square in a white field feels awfully good to me. These screens all come out of that particular seed-bed.
