My Photographs

I shoot lots of photographs everywhere I go. Like most people, most of the shots are not particularly artistic. This is a work in progress, a kind of a live lightbox to find the artistic. I am making successive passes at weeding out the bad stuff in hopes of distilling this into a quality curation.

I have been fortunate to be able to do some travelling, so the images are from a wide range of places.

My Artwork

Since my art school days, I have done a lot of graphic design and art direction. I have more time now to pursue my fine art interests. I am still drawn toward the immediate and generative nature of photography. I combine that with my love of serigraphy to create these collages. I print these on quality watercolor paper using inkjet technology, so that all evidence of the printing dots bleed together, producing a silkscreen-like final output.

My work tends to take images I find interesting and juxtapose them in non-representational ways and which draw on meanings or symbols from other, more historical roots, or to present images where the elements are representational but in visually dissonant ways.

I have also always been interested in found object art. One of my art teachers did a lot of sculpture using found objects. Some of my work uses “digital found objects” — 3d models of objects rummaged from industrial sites, and repurposed in Cinema 4D.
