I have been thinking a lot about social issues since we have entered this new era in American political life. My special concern rests with climate change and its impact on the oceans. As the polar ice caps warm at an alarming rate, populations plan to evacuate island homes and Miami Beach experiences ‘sunshine’ flooding, climate change deniers abound.

Recently my art has explored the beauty of shells and seashores; therefore I have naturally extended my concern to the oceans themselves. This new series, Abstract Ocean Art, continues to employ digital collage of my acrylic painting and photography. Although semi-abstract, elements of ocean imagery and the titles inform the viewer of various environmental issues.

It is a deep feeling of apprehension for our future that has brought me to delve into this new series.
