Artist statement

The “Postnuclear Future” series, a set of digitally blended images, was composed with Putin’s threats to the West in mind. His actual destruction in the East is too horrific to depict.

This may be a bit more emotional than expected, but my heart goes out to both the Russian and Ukrainian soldiers. My father served as a bomber pilot in World War II, and I know firsthand the kind of damage war survivors live with. And they’re the lucky ones.
