Artist's Description

This a linocut from a series I did in the 1980's. Prayer would be an example of sympathetic magic. I had just relocated to LA and found my first real studio. I was fascinated with LA and its layering. Everything was layered from the graffiti over graffiti over walls over signs to all the social layering of the LA art world, personalities over personalities over personalities. I had removed the relationship between objects and their accepted collective relationships and was dealing with the formal aspects of art in relationship to themselves. Titles of paintings became important to me as well. A title of a painting can be so limiting and confine the viewer into a preconceived idea and not let the viewer have his own personal experience but rather a collective experience, so I chose titles that were equally as open as the work I was creating, thereby letting the viewer supply the meaning because he can supply no meaning other than his own.
