"The title of the exhibition, The Ides of March, is the name of the 15th day of March in the Roman calendar. The word "Ides" comes from the Latin word "Idus" meaning "half division" pertaining to a month or a period of time. My exhibition, of the same title, suggests an important point of reference, a personal perspective, which offers a unique opportunity to look back and, at the same time, considers the future—a mid-career or half-division "Idus" of my creative output. Perhaps a look at my artistic productivity is obviously a bit more important because of what it represents, but I am not dwelling too much on it. It's the end of a chapter. Proceeds from the sold out show went to the regional SPCA."
