“The vibrance of glass mesmerizes me. It holds light like no other medium and energizes the imagination”
Christopher Baer

Since the early 2000’s he has concentrated on a body of work in contemporary oil painting.
Two series, called “Palisades” and “Line Theory”, comprise a body of large-scale studies in form, color and line.
He found his way to Murano where he forged a lasting relationship with LP.
In an experiment that blossomed into an entirely new series of works, he translated select oil painting sas sketches in vibrant, fused glass.
The series would grow to include fresh compositions in addition to those that reference the foundations oh his contemporary painting.
