On September 8, 2001, I exhibited the first of the orange paintings at the Hall Space Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts. It was the weekend before… After that Tuesday I couldn’t continue working in that direction. While there were other projects completed, many building on my interest in genetics and evolution the orange paintings lay dormant, unrealized. Now a decade later I have returned to them. Inevitably shaped by the events of the past ten years these paintings embrace my desire to continue working. I ask that as you view these paintings you contemplate what you have lived through in the past ten years and meditate on how that time has shaped all of us.
