CONCEPTUAL ART, 1972-76
From the moment I was exposed to Mike Malloy's brand of conceptual art, focusing on human psychology and incorporating the actions of people, I knew my own creative direction. My art was interactive and used photography and text. It took less than six months from my first attempts at making conceptual art, to my first one-person show in fall 1973 at OK Harris Gallery in Soho. In the mid-70s the Fine Arts Building in Tribeca was an important arts center and I included in trendy group shows organized by up and coming young curators like "Lives" by Jeffrey Deitch, I continued to exhibit in galleries for almost a decade.
