The ink drawings are inspired by the microbiological species radiolaria. As a young college student, I was a biology major. In zoology lab, we looked microscopically at these organisms in pond water. I'm still fascinated by their delicate plant-like configurations.

The "Theater of the Absurd" collages relate to the literary idea of the theater of the absurd, which is defined as "theater in which standard or naturalistic conventions of plot, characterization, and thematic structure are ignored or distorted in order to convey the irrational or fictive nature of reality"

This could describe the chaos in the current presidential administration and in the US congress.
