Artist Statement (c. 1999):
"The titles of my lithographs, in some way, describe their intent. Conversos, in Spanish, connotes changing points of view. Illustrating this quite literally, I have created a series of images whereby color bands emanate outward from singular to multiple points of view. ... These works originated from a series of gouaches entitled Road to Nice which I completed while living in southern France last year. ... If open to the effects of a new landscape and the resident muses of one's predecessors-a "conversion" of sorts-one is at the very least likely to experience a shift in viewpoint."
