The Diptych series (consisting of 4 diptychs) are abstracted images created within a concrete bunker under a midtown Tulsa home as a response to the Cuban Missile Crisis, now used as a tornado shelter.  The images stem from various pipes within the small underground room.  The choice to create images within the diptych format was born of the dual purpose of the original bunker.  

I am pleased to announce I have six pieces of my work, including two from the diptych series, at the 108 Contemporary Gallery in the consignment gallery,  108 East Brady Street, Tulsa Oklahoma.  The folks at 108 Contemporary recently interviewed me about my work.  You can read more here:
