ARTIST STATEMENT

It’s about perspective. From a distance a familiar image – a landscape, a figure, or architectural form – can be seen. The close view reveals an abstract picture, where clearly defined pixels, symbols, or text, may dominate the attention.

Various processes are used to make the basic elements of the image visible. Attributes of both state of the art and rudimentary (obsolete) software are used to achieve the effect that is needed for a particular image. Editing and digital processing that includes techniques normally thought of as traditional darkroom procedures- are also frequently employed.

Ultimately, the image should allow the viewers imagination to evoke past, or hoped for, experiences – often with no specific recollection or expectation.
