He spends his personal time producing
2&3-dimensional works of art.
In the vernacular of "Art-Speak,"
these works are described as:
Mixed-Media Structural Assemblages,
but he refers to them as:
which are comprised from his SLR/Darkroom-printed images, architectural gestures of wood, found objects, and sometimes a touch of color to highlight a detail, accentuate a line, suggest a mood ...
The purpose and pleasure he seeks to achieve is a symbiotic balance of beauty from a thought, moment, or story through images, forms, and found objects shamed and discarded as "ugly" so as to instill the inherent aesthetics of pride rooted within collective-community.
