"As an artist and geometer 'infinity' has taken an important place in my life in terms of abstraction.  At the age of five I had frequent dreams of infinite distances in space between spheres.  This was quite an overwhelming experience for me and at the age of seven informed my mother of these ongoing dreams of infinity and she stated 'no one has dreams of infinity – silly'.  While working on my M.F.A. at The City College, Professor Jacob Rothenberg, Chairman of the Dept. of Fine Arts, after I discussed my childhood dreams of infinite stated that 'Buddha dreamt of infinity'.."

2008, Acrylic on Lexan, 36 x 72 inches

"As a model this painting entitled Accelerated Time represents a future light cone event depicted by an infinitely far distance from the present apex or vertex traveling with infinite velocity to a vantage point of reference in the picture.  In cosmological terms we are thrown into a space and time that is indeterminate of its effect on our present time separating our experience in reality.  Since Hubble's Law has been emended in the last decade by findings that the universal expansion is accelerating everywhere, with the very popular and current controversy over 'dark matter' which is thought now to predominate over visible matter and energy and by a large degree in fact. Thus the black field, as it also predominates in the visual presentation may be suggestive of this dark energy also postulated by some to involve itself in the acceleration of the expanding universe. There are the white spectral lines separating and the black field outside of the light cone. From Newton to D’Alembert to Einstein and Hawking,  I have created a painting of dynamical space and time."
