STATEMENT This work is a study of how nature and power rhyme. These are snapshots of what is under the surface: seductive gardens, playgrounds, sensual and scary things…. some frightening. Are they microscopic or large enough to climb inside? You are invited in to explore and play. Process Remarks: This work is digital.... I use CAD [computer-aided-design] software, fractal software, painting software and digital photography to show you what we don't pay attention to. Some of the work is printed on aluminum via photographic process, some printed on metallic film and bonded to the reverse side of clear Plexiglas. Some pieces are printed at high resolution on smooth paper and teased with acrylic. Craftsmanship counts.
