The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
My overriding intention is to make thought-provoking and eye-delighting images.
The prints were all drawn in Photoshop. Each print is one of an extended series in which the sequence of images shows the viewer the evolution of ideas and the narrative within that series. The paintings were based, loosely, on some of my Photoshop prints.
My style is a combination of figuration and abstraction. In some works, figuration is predominant; in other works, abstraction—but the resulting work contains an (un)easy combination of two ways to translate feelings, memories and observations into visual images. The images in my work often refer to the human body—specifically, the female body, that first landscape to greet us when we come into the world.
I have been a painter for many years and continue to find painting on canvas (or on Claybord™) to be challenging and meaningful. In the last eight or so years, I “discovered” Photoshop, and using this medium feels like second nature. The speed with which images can be made and evolve into other images; the ability to save prior images while the images continue to evolve; the seemingly infinite possibilities of what can be made visible; the ephemeral nature of virtual products—and the easy storage—all of these qualities in working digitally are exciting and stimulating.
