Art

One creative sideline of mine is photography, often in an abstract vein where I look to decontextualize surface artifacts on an object by getting close enough to transform the surface into a composition on its own merits. On occasion a more representational image may catch my attention, and may fit the theme of an exhibit.

Since late 2019 I've been submitting some of these for juried public-gallery exhibits, and some have been accepted. A few works exhibited at non-juried or members' shows are also included.

More recently I've begun exploring digital image processing in ways that transform a photographic image into a graphic that is no longer fundamentally photographic, and these works I am calling "digital photo-graphics" in order to distinguish them from pure photography, but to retain a reference to the compositional origins in photography.
