||Like the title, my creative work is split down a curving middle. As an artist, I constantly find myself trying to reconcile opposing and complimentary forces. This open edition artist book seeks balance between words and images without either overpowering the other. It is also the balance between the life of the mind and the lush reality of the senses. Obliquely referring to that famous symbol of dynamic equilibrium, the yin (masculine) yang (feminine). The second half is composed primarily of haiku,a poetic form that combines strict formality with direct experience. To order a copy from the Artist|
Be A Friend,Children With HIV Speak
edited by Lori Wiener, Aprille Best, Philip Pizzo
I'm deeply proud to be associated with this project. This book is a compilation of stories and drawing by children about living with HIV. A history of the early AIDS epidemic in America from a child's point of view. No self-pity and straight from the heart. Buy a copy and support the Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
