"JACK LENOR LARSEN: THE MUSIC OF HOME"
"It was a rewarding experience to assemble the Laren retrospective. Working with the people and the environment that surround Jack Lenor Larsen was almost a religious experience. I had a strong reaction during the slide show production, editing and assembling of visual material. The juxtaposition of vivid color, graphic texture and the serene elegance of Jack's product had the same dynamics of a beautifully orchestrated musical piece. It is for this reason I have given the presentation the title JACK LENOR LARSE: THE MUSIC OF HOME."
