ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am a digital artist and a feral, no make that theoretical, psychologist. My digital constructions are abstract, expressionistic, symbolic, and even occasionally representational. The digital medium is still in a developmental phase as an artistic vehicle, similar to the state of photography in the mid-20th century. Though I am drawn to the medium by its plasticity and variety of applicable techniques, my work is definitely about artistry rather than computer wizardry. Creating an image is a multistage interaction between my own artistic sensibilities and the results of myriad manipulations. Each image begins as a digital painting of color and form. This foundation is sculpted and transformed depending on my inclinations. More advanced computer techniques are then applied, much as a potter applies various glazes. Through trial-and-error and guided evolution, the work gradually finds a unique conclusion. This may reflect my original intent, but quite often the process follows its own trajectory, resulting in the discovery of unintended consequences. I find this sort of outcome to be particularly rewarding.
