My latest series of works, all done from photos taken on a trip to Sea Girt New Jersay on New Years Day, is a striking contrast with my previous series on rockface details. In place of the strong forms and near permanence of the rock we have the moment by moment transience of the sea, sand and sky. The works are much more subtle and subdued in their effects; all is ambience, all is vapor. And yet, these are just two extremes in the ultimate transience of all material things: the rocks show the marks of time as clearly as do the sea and sand.
