I use digital media to make myself laugh and, ironically, escape while depicting the chaotic disjointed quality of modern existence.
Via sophisticated, complex layered architecture of scanned analog drawing, vector drawing, digital painting and photography, crisp stylized graphics fuse with painterly imprecision to form charming and highly stylized, fantastical scenes.
Fine line and hard edge interlace within soft, Gaussian blurs and purposefully inexact marks. Rarefied, refined portions devolve to irregular, conspicuously crude elements and seemingly haphazard expanses. Outwardly unrelated bits sheer, shift and crystallize into sublime compositions – multi-faceted sur-reality – filled with delightful inventive twists.
In wry humor, zany, abstracted sailors, celestial beings, bizarre ogres and oafs, coalesce, traverse and investigate rugged mountains, waterways, lush gardens and quixotic oases in search of sanctuary and respite from new technological prosperity.
