About

        My realist techniques were developed during the college years. In the 1970s, I moved to rural South Jersey and this led to paintings of South Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania landscapes––beginning in 1979. That same year, I began a thirty five-year affiliation with the trendy O. K. Harris Gallery in the SoHo section of New York City, an affiliation that included nine solo exhibitions in NYC. During those years, the gallery sponsored numerous solo and group exhibitions across the country––many curated––with over four hundred paintings and prints placed in private, public and corporate art collections. O.K. Harris provided a highly articulated context for contemporary exhibitions, a context built from four decades of exhibitions of the highest quality. That context included the most sophisticated forms of contemporary realism. Landscape Illusion (1987) illustrates and explains the unique acrylic technique and composition methods employed in my paintings. DC
