In 1970 he began working in printmaking, film, video, installation, sculpture and photography.[2] He created thousands of works which demonstrate—and, in many cases, combine—the narrative potential of images and the associative power of language within the boundaries of the work of art. His art has been featured in more than 200 solo exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe.[3] His work influenced that of Cindy ShermanDavid SalleAnnette Lemieux, and Barbara Kruger among others
