In his works one can find Scenes of distant cosmic nebulas , Captured moments of some primordial ocean depths . Are the scenes biological, spinning diatom aquariums, or cellular, molecular events ? Pattern dynamics of even smaller scales, glimpes into the mysterious quantal fabric ? And again, the vibrant tones of familiar~unfamiliar scenes inspire more poetic interpretations, hyperchomospheres, the secret life and unknown prismatic mysteries of light ? The uncertainty of scale and place are tantalizing, and spawn uncertainty that inspires wonder and creativity in the observer~observing, and also… a conflict.
