INSTALLATION VIEWS

Installation views from Respite: patterns & places, real & imagined, a 2010 solo exhibit at Galatea Fine Art in Boston, MA. The name stems from feeling  that everywhere I look, there are signs, directions, calls for action. When I create, I want to make art that allows my eyes to follow their own path, to formulate my own thoughts, and find my own meaning. I want to get lost in a visual where I can hear myself think, where there is no specific agenda or call to act.

This collection of digital mixed media has at its core digital photography, which I shot in places as varied as the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and the streets of New York City . Inspired by nature, even in the city, I've layered many of these images together in Photoshop until a new composition is derived. Rather than a literal replication, I've tried to create a memory of the patterns, colors and senses I felt during the visit. The hybrid artworks incorporate this digital imagery and photography with acrylics, collage, and other media through an intuitive process of experimental and alternative printmaking techniques.
