Artist Statement

I was raised in Pasadena, California, but when I was 13, I was abruptly moved to midtown Manhattan. This sudden change of scenery influenced the way I see things today. My images tend to depict environments with unlikely inhabitants, or inhabitants in unlikely environments. I try to give these juxtapositions some mischief, while making a statement on the human condition, either politically, physically or spiritually.

I want the viewer to be challenged and entertained by this mixture of the macabre and the playful.

The Guestbook

jimfreeman says: I was very moved by Tony's restlessness, the energy of his search, the clarity of his expression, and his wicked sense of humor. He's uncertain and unsettled: excellent qualities for an artist.
