Dolce Vita III - Composed of 24 8"x8" Tiles. Dimensions variable - shown 44"x68"x1.5"

This body of artwork, titled Symbologies, uses the idioms of ideograms or hieroglyphics to create pared-down representations of of the world. The viewer is invited to provide their own unique interpretation to the images the artist presents, thus allowing a unique experience particular to that viewer. The modular nature of the work allows an owner to easily 'reset' the sequence of work and thus the 'narrative' as well.

Shorelines - Composed of 24 8"x8" tiles. Dimensions variable - shown 44"x68"x1.5"
