In wry humor, I use the computer to depict 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.
Zany, Abstracted sailors, celestial beings, bizarre ogres and oafs, coalesce and traverse rugged mountains, waterways and lush gardens and quixotic oases to investigate the “mystery of an unknown earth!…the dreams of men, the seeds of commonwealth, the germs of empires”… the interconnection between ancient man and cultures, and new technological prosperity.
