“…the present culture is caught between ages. This results in discomfort even confusion. As I create these works I am aware of a struggle in my own integration. The future struggling with the past, the mind wanting the spirit as integral; emotions stilled by a question that emerges from the process of creation. I do not see my own multi level struggle as a solitary quest; it is a quest resulting from an age that is demanding a more total integration. Room is being made for both the mystic and the scientist…” Excerpt, Eisert Hall Notes, 1985
