L. R. Emerson II is considered the Thomas Edison of artmaking with his thirty years of culminating research and he is also considered the artist to the stars:

Having created work for Grammy winning singer/songwriter Leon Russell in 1991, 1992 and 1993 L. R. Emerson II created commemorative work for Leon Russell in 2011 to celebrate Leon’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

To me patterns take on a life of their own, like living entities existing within the mind and I cannot help but to give them their due in the spotlight. Though we’ve involved museums around the globe in my work I am simply content working alone, researching and developing more patterns.
