Art New England, March/April 2012: Master Mentor/ Mentor Master- The evolving dynamic of printmakers Don Gorvett and Sean Hurley By Debbie Hagan
Maine Sunday Telegram , April 15, 2012: Art Review: The Mysteries and Joys of Printmaking By Philip Isaacson (link)
This work is a documentation of the environments - both physical and mental - through which life's path takes me. In the play of light and shadows over crumbling walls, weathered streets, and open skies, I find a poignant visual metaphor for my own internal environments. These prints represent the intersection of these two seemingly separate worlds, united in their exposure to the onslaught of time, and by the unshakable inevitability of change.
