  • Catalogue Essay

    I decided to do what I thought was non-art.  A non-art gesture, and I thought I would... put some clouds around the edge of the earth, and did a work that I called Weather Compendium.  One part is night, one part is good weather, another part is rain and storm.  This is the beginning of (my mature practice)…and looking back it’s hard to believe, but I really did have the attitude that I was sick and tired of the art world, sick and tired of dealers.
