My art is an attempt to put before the public graphic and abstract symbols representative of these problems. In the Ground Zero series radial balance and bi-lateral symmetry are used to maintain visual interest first in the central color areas. The wedge shapes created from various recycled materials, opalescent Mylar and bleached color movie film represent the blast point of ground zero. The grid areas represent the landscape architecture of city streets. The 16 mm microfilm pattern is of individual bank statements and personalizes the imagery by introducing public documentation as texture and content. Graphic images on rag paper and acetate carry images of innocents, adult pornography, terrorists and nuclear bombs. Using fluorescent colors in contrast to large areas of black Mylar depicts the dynamic transitions that occur in a bomb blast. Netting and zigzag stitches add texture and assist in holding together the non-woven materials. The total visual result is an aerial perspective view of nuclear ground zero.
