This will be his first show at the gallery exhibiting a group of 20 paintings alongside a conceptual sound collage of music and sonic ephemera working in the space between sound and sight.

The paintings bear the same subject matter: a disembodied hand, poised and manicured, holding a rose—not taking it or giving it, but only holding it.

Entitled "Prospect and Refuge" and according to Jay Appleton's theory of prospect and refuge, two of our most basic and deep-rooted needs are for opportunity and shelter.
