Modal Imagery $12.00
As a creative jazz musician and performer, my earlier studies in music were devoted to modes. When I first studied the modes, I learned them in a mechanical manner. Harmony class did not discuss the type of feeling quality the various modes could produce. I knew theoretically the difference between each mode and could distinguish sound differentials between the major and minor modes but I did not play the modes from my heart.
*There is also a set of photographs that was inspired by each mode. Click here to check them out.

“…All three musicians have performed and recorded with musicians like Zoot Sims, Red Rodney, Bobby Hutcherson and Tiny Grimes, so their jazz credentials cannot be ignored and this recording proves that New York must have some of the best piano trios in the United States…”
—David Griffith / South Wales Evening Post-Friday / April 24, 1998

SURFACE ABSTRACTIONS 2004
c prints on Kodak Ultra N Matte Surface
These surface abstractions are part of a larger series of abstracts that I shot in NYC in 1992. I wanted to convey that there really is colour in this city; sometimes you just have to look for it. Using Ektar 25 film, I originally presented my colour surface abstractions in an 8x10 format. Over the years I have always wanted to blow them up. Even though I shot the abstractions 12 years ago, i see them in a new and different way. The subtle nuances of colour intensify the textural terrain and images unfold to a harmonious resolution.
8x12, 11x14, or 11x17=32.
