This exhibition is the third show in a series of four presentations, beginning in 2017 with “The Past is Still With Us”, continued in 2018 with“Reflections” and now in 2021 with “3rd-Arc.” The series will culminate with a fourth exhibit, dates to be decided. This cycle of work reflects my interest in the pain and suffering caused by the Holocaust in Europe and other holocausts where people are considered else less than by others. While the circle of my life continues to expand, this exploration, this circle closes with the final exhibition tentatively titled, “Roots.”

The work in this 2021 exhibition reflects the changes and turns in my life, thinking, consciousness and creativity in the last years, including the isolation of the pandemic.

Yesterday is written, tomorrow is unknown. Today is the only time we have to act. Each moment is a new moment. Be mindful and aware. Breathe Peacefully.
