What is the significance of "cleeze"? Is that the name you use when creating your art, kind of like a pen name? If so, what made you choose it?

Roland it’s not so much as a question but a comment. I want you to know that in the time I have been following you and the time we have shared as creatives I appreciate the love you have shared and the inspiration you set. Youre greatness

Roland - I understand your work will be a part of the LET’S PRETEND show at the Bruce Gallery in September - what will you be showing then?

I’ll also recommend the Rutger Bregman book Utopia for Realists - like the Angela Davis book, it shows us the larger, national and global, systems that control our economic realities, power structures, etc. - another honest and excellent examination of systems that shape our lives. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/7/26/8909436/rutger-bregman-utopia-for-realists-ubi-open-borders
