The main attraction was watching me cut up Coca-Cola cans with a sizzors.

Above & Below exhibit feature. I received the inspiration for this show after seeing the sensuous and innovative work of local artist Flora Davis. With much in common but each of us working with uniquely different materials and intellectual approaches, the exhibition was full of contrasts. The response was tremendous.
