“This too shall pass.” These words play a key role in my work. What is nostalgia? What is so moving about distant times and places? My inquiries result in lonely and dimly lit scenes: a pack of feral dogs runs through an abandoned subdivision or a sphinx throws up images of the industrial revolution. An apocalyptic feeling comes into the pieces about the present. What will be left of our cities when this time passes?
