Photomontage

Photomontage

By juxtaposing and layering my original photographs I create a world removed from the limits of reality. Using the computer as my paintbrush facilitates results that would be impossible in the traditional darkroom. Like dreams, this art possesses a vividness and connection to experience, but yet it's an illusion. The allegorical imagery engages the eyes, minds, and spirits of the viewers and invites them to develop their own personal interpretation.

 

Mixed Media

Mixed Media

My mixed media work is built layer upon layer by interlacing my photography with acrylic paint and collage to create one-of-a-kind artworks. The juxtaposition of opposing elements such as painterly and hard edge, organic and geometric, textural and smooth, transparent and opaque creates a visual dance. The resulting effect is energetic, yet tranquil due to the subject matter. The rhythms and patterns of the natural world evoke a sense of calm and serenity.

 

Abstract

Abstract

Guided by intuition, a fusion of gesture and geometry flows out onto the canvas in my abstract paintings. I begin my work with a basic composition and color scheme, but then yield to what is happening in the painting as it develops. Many subjective considerations and decisions are required to discover the painting's potential. To create a complexity of pattern and texture, I often incorporate elements of collage in the layers of acrylic paint. The layers of paint over line and texture leave intriguing traces of what came before. The juxtaposition of muted with intense color and transparent with opaque areas elaborates on the visual dance.
