Reception Thursday December 8, 7-9pm

In the artists words:
"Monochrome compositions comprising the human form (or parts thereof), interiors (ecclesiastical and otherwise) and occasional landscapes, acknowledging the writings of Franz Kafka, Philip Larkin and Friedrich Nietzsche with obeisance due to M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte; being attempts to convey anger, heartache, confusion and hatred (that most potent of emotional cocktails) and their antidotes: obsession and desire the highest forms of which, despite the prison of our existence, somehow manage "to prove our almost-instinct almost true: What will survive of us is love."
