Looking for Something

       But there is compassion - and a kind of hope. These frozen moments in a series of anonymous lives are fragments in a kind of mosaic mural of contemporary America. There is sadness and pain here. Yet none of his figures are victims. All of them are looking for something - looking out through windows, into themselves, probing the darkness, examining the worlds in their coffee cup.
