“The drawings in this collection are from a series done in 2005-2006 while I was living in Paris. It was an intense period filled with smoke, generous amounts of wine and finally a shattered relationship. Scores of drawings were made spontaneously produced often at a rate of one a day with an accompanying text immediately written after the drawing was finished. The needle of my emotional, mental and spiritual state had swung hard left to the negative pole. Misbegotten creatures spewed forth loaded with dark energy from an interior space hopelessly devoid of light; yet armored with shiny and smooth exoskeletons. Perhaps ultimately a show of resilience or resistance, I had neither the time or inclination to consider which but to be sure it was some kind of a visceral reaction to the state of things at that point in time”,
