Artist's Statement - Flat and Ugly

A remark by a lifelong friend who lives in Washington, D.C. and makes his living as an architect and a sculptor precipitated this project which I call "Flat&Ugly". His remark in the form of a question was, "How can you live so far away from everything in a land that is so flat and ugly?"
