Monk’s Chaser: A jazz influenced piece, this refers to pianist Theloneous Monk whose signature work is "Straight, No Chaser." Size: 41 x 32"
Ah Ah Um: This is a jazz influenced piece referencing an album title of songs by bassist Charlie Mingus. I find a strong affinity between jazz and abstract art since both attempt to redefine rules and invent new means of expression. Size: 38 x 33.5"
Tonky Honk: The bold colors here represent the raucous music of honky tonks, and the title also reflects my interest in rhetoric as I reverse letters in a Spoonerism. Size: 48.5x34" $1500
Sun Ra's Groove: Sun Ra was an atonal jazz musician I got to know when I was in school in Detroit. He claimed to be born on another planet, Jupiter or Saturn, as I remember. Atonality is a perfect match with abstract art. Size: 44 x 40.5"
