I have been a painter for many years. Four or so years ago, I began experimenting with drawing and “painting” in Photoshop. I became (and remain) enthralled with the seemingly infinite possibilities inherent in this digital medium.
My prints influence my paintings; my paintings influence my prints. The proposed installation of a mixture of similarly-sized works transversing the library wall will show the flow and interchange of images in both media. The work is “done” and “undergoes” an evolution – in images, narrative and ideas.
I work in series of narrative images (in Photoshop). The speed in which images can evolve while earlier versions can be retained; the ability to incorporate into the drawings images photographed from the 3-dimensional world; the ethereal nature of computer-based work—all of these qualities (and others unmentioned here) have made digital printmaking an extremely stimulating way for me to make work.
