Description:

My current artwork is a culmination of over thirty years with a camera in my hands, and an earnest study of photographic history. The pieces are sheets of dark brown steel, painted with many layers of gold paint, providing a textured and luminous underpainting for my photograph. I am then printing the photograph on top of this painted surface allowing the gold to shine through. This results in an image that is ever changing, both with the lighting because of the luminosity and with the viewing angle because of the texture. Photographically my images are about space and light and are not meant to be about specific location, but to recall a sense or memory of place. They are metaphors for the space in-between where things are subtly beautiful if we pause long enough to pay attention.

Because of my desire to continuously explore new images and to create only original pieces I print my images only once per size in the five sizes that I work in, which means I have a constantly changing gallery of works available.
