The Invention of Maps
Archival Pigment Print on Birch Box
I am honored to have my image The Invention of Maps accepted into New England VIII Juried Exhibition
I do not think of myself as a photographer, printmaker or a painter. Rather— without being identified by a single one—I feel free to move past the confines of traditional media or genres. I draw from and mix together an endless variety of available material. Each digital print begins by choosing images from my extensive collection of scanned original paintings, monoprints, photographs and personal markings. Elements are then layered over one another. Hard edges, line, and color fields combine in surprising ways. Blending modes are used with careful attention to color, form and composition. Transparent multilayers echo fainter versions of shapes and textures. By keeping the process fluid, I enjoy a cross-pollination of the various disciplines. Using my computer as both a tool and a partner, I am free to experiment throughout the process. The resulting combined-media image cannot be made by any other means.
