Interests and Personality

BiographyEspecially, the emergence of conceptual art opened the way for archives of dollhouse paintings reminiscent of childhood visits to the Rijksmuseum, the British Museu, the Louvre, and the Sistine Chapel. My childhood was cool because my Dad was Cultural Liaison to Mayor Wagner. Winning the war meant nothing when it came to the cultural circus that was New York during the 1950's. Marcel Duchamp replaced his art with chess playing. The Hispanic Society, American Indian Museum, Harlem, and the Museum of the City of New York were daily haunts along with Marilyn Monroe riding a pink elephant at Madison Square Garden. Arthur Miller, Sylvia Plath and Saul Bellow echoed the general mood. The McCarthy era, the Korean War and the children of the Holocaust were ever present traumas of the inhabitants of my neighborhood.
