Description will follow in the next few days…the destruction of mankind…

“Today every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable. Every man, woman and child lives under a sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident, by miscalculation or by madness. The weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us.”

John F. Kennedy at the United Nations on nuclear proliferation…09/25/61

“I have become death, shatterer of worlds.”

Robert J. Oppenheimer, ‘FATHER OF THE ATOMIC BOMB’, from an essay on the NUCLEAR THREAT.’

I see little of more importance to the future of our country and our civilization than full recognition of the place of the artist. If art is to noruish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him. We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda, it is a form of TRUTH.

Freedom is indivisible, and when one man is enslaved, all are not free. The supreme reality of our time is our indivisibility as children of GOD and the common vulnerability of the planet. (It is very hard to stand-up for one’s ideals…sometimes it cost everything…)

I have a deep love for expressionism – ‘Expressionistic artist sought to develop pictorial forms which would express their innermost feelings rather than represent the external world. Expressionist painting is intense, passionate and highly personal, based on the concept of the painter’s canvas as a vehicle for demonstrating emotions. Violent, unreal color and dramatic brushwork make the typical expressionistic painting quiver with vitality.’ This is what I try to achieve when I paint.
