For several years I focused my artwork primarily on the game of chess, both for the love of the game itself and it’s many varied strategic inferences in business/society. I tried to modernize the boards and players to reflect our current life and work, and succeeded on many levels. Unfortunately, mankind doesn’t transform as easily as one can recreate a playing board. It takes much more work to accept new representations of much-loved objects, or perhaps it’s just a last stage denial of change. Who knows. I really enjoyed creating them.
