This exhibition takes an empathic look at the nature of addiction - how addicts think, feel and act. The images and words are derived from an amalgam of my clinical and artistic practices.Their juxtapositions are meant to engage and challenge the viewer to discover new connections and insights. My overall goal is to provoke questions, curiosity and discussion.

Thank you to my friends, the professionals and the recovering community, who continue to help me understand addiction and to evolve this art form.

The artwork in this exhibition derives from printed texts, hieroglyphs, graffiti, and type fonts which have been transformed into abstract imagery. The unique quality of Gutenberg type morphs into a visual poem. 15th century Latin script twists into fossil forms. The patinated colors of Egyptian hieroglyphs evolve into musical rhythms. A mysterious landscape slips out of a 1940’s geometry textbook. Shell forms and calligraphy spring from the altered page of an 1860’s edition of Les Miserables. The written word becomes an alphabet of visual imagery echoing the printed past with a new and dynamic voice.
