A New Arcadia

A New Arcadia takes its title from my reaction to certain features of the landscape of Provence and Tuscany. There, the cypress and southern pines, which to me are representative of primordial male and female shapes, mingle to conjure from amidst our modern life, a vanished, mystical  world, where poets once dreamt of satyrs, nymphs and dryads languishing in flowered groves and temples.

The influence of both the light and landscape of the Mediterranean on these works is undeniable and sets the background for a dialogue with the great colorists who followed Cezanne, namely Matisse, Picasso, Miro and Leger.
