I'm a photographer/painter photographing what I see
on my computer from both the real world and the
virtual. My work is heavy on the post-production side.
Most of it starts as semi-poetic thought, but some as
Pointillists and Pop artists have used dots in their
work. I use pixels. I reduce the resolution of photos (usually screen shots
of my own images or from the public domain) to make
them hardly recognizable. I then interpolate the files to
my favorite 60 pixel x 40 pixel size for output and paint on the
enlarged pixels to give the work an impasto look.
In doing this I create a hybrid between abstract and
representational art. While I make the inspirations hardly recognizable,
the style of the final output is distinctly mine.
Very few photographers have recognizable styles.
I add a personal touch to photography and often use
sources that count on the viewer's memory for an "aha!"
My images can be enjoyed for their abstract, intrinsic beauty.
I answer the ubiquitous question: "What does this abstract piece represent?"
The answer is a more or less photo-realistic thumbnail.
