The Human Condition
and the Realities of Aging

The artist explores the realities of aging and the isolation of dementia, focusing on themes of identity theft, role reversals, and the fear of fate. He brings to light a connection between the tragic heroes of Greek mythology and the trials of modern man; bad things happening to good people, things over which they have no control.
