In 2007, he built Array, a site-specific installation consisting of seven painted steel units for the grounds at Dallas Contemporary. “Attractors”, a recent series of miniature mixed media works were shown in 2013 at OK Harris Gallery in New York and Gallery 210 on the campus of University of Missouri St. Louis. In 2019 they were featured in the Art and Culture program at the Lambert International Airport in St. Louis.
