Carried by the frenetic energy of a magic carpet, "Concrete Parlay" is a metaphysical flight that weaves among visual kernels of the anthropic and biological worlds. From prehistoric horseshoe crabs strewn among modern refuse, stoic pyramids foregrounded by golf course maintenance, mystic rituals evoking avian gestures, to contemporary political upheaval equalized by natural phenomena—the poetic equivalence among images transcends particular "umwelten", as the disorienting whirl of the compass connotes the kinetic nature of existence. - Aily Nash
