1980s LANDSCAPES

     Below are just a few from what I referred to as Imaginary Landscape or Semi-Classical Sketch Page. They are from throughout the 1980s.

     There are well over fifty of these landscapes along with many drawings. (click for sample drawings)

     At the time I was actively showing in The East Village and living at 217 Bowery between Rivington and Stanton.

     I was working as both a mover and a cab driver, raising a very young son, painting and staying away from the clubs and coke that defined that period.

     My studio doubled as a playhouse for my son. The street below functioned as and open air latrine and asylum.

    The sort of free form, paradoxical stream of consciousness in these paintings, fit well with that place and at that the time
