About My Artwork
My personal work features digital collages made from found imagery, classical art and photography.
These create a surreal world of found and transformed images, puzzle pieces that form a symbolic world reflecting our own. I feel the images spring from a dialog between my subconscious and my conscious self, having personal themes grounded in today’s cultural milieu of corporate governing bodies and seemingly hapless humans who’s ultimate nature is of a powerful and infinite transcendence. The results create holistic, bold, and impactful photo manipulations that are produced as signed limited edition archival quality art prints.
What drives me as an artist: I think we need to go beyond the illusion that we are separate from nature. One cannot be an objective observer when one is part of the observed experiment. Realizing we’re part of it can give us room to pause, to breathe, and to go forward with accuracy and increased respect for the natural world of which we are part. Wisdom via self awareness is key.
