As expressionism, my work is something like abstraction "striving to be representation/realism" rather than the reverse as in old German Expressionism.

My inspirations and influence have been: the certain impressionism of high-altitude vertical color photography ("The World From Above') and artists Henri Rousseau, Marc Chagall, Henry Moore, Jasper Johns, and pen-and-ink illustrator Robert Crumb. I admire and like "oddballs" in visual art, literature and music.
