Past Meets Present EXHIBITION

"MY PAST.   MY PRESENT.  BOTH INVOLVE THE COROMANDEL.. I GUESS ITS IN MY BLOOD.

EVER SINCE LANCE AND I MOVED DOWN TO OUR LAND I HAVE BEEN THINKING , OR RATHER CONTEMPLATING THE LIVES OF THOSE BEFORE US , THOSE THAT CARVED OUT A LIVING FROM THE LANDS AND WATERS OF THE COROMANDEL.... MANY OF WHOM STILL HAVE FAMILY HERE NOW.

MY PERSONAL HISTORY ONLY GOES BACK ONE GENERATION... I WAS BATHED IN A BUCKET OVER XMAS IN 1963 AND HAVE BEEN SMITTEN EVER SINCE.

  I'M THINKING I WANT TO TRAVERSE BACK IN TIME WITH MY IMAGERY.... NOT COPYING OLD BLACK AND WHITES , BUT MAYBE LIKE AN UNWRITTEN RECIPE , I CAN COMBINE INGREDIENTS... THE GHOSTS OF THE PAST WITH LOCAL HISTORY AND ADDING A LARGE DOLLOP OF IMAGINATION TO GIVE IT A REFRESHING MODERN TWIST ".
