Statement

Converse to the expectation that a digital image is cold and impersonal – a romantic flamboyance pervades this body of work. Since it is possible to control so much of the digital process, through multiple layers, easy erasure, etc., I’ve embraced an improvisational approach to the initial creation of these digital paintings.  As the work develops complexity my visual judgment and manipulation increases, culminating in painterly interventions that add to the richness of the painting. Through dynamic compositions, the depiction of radiant light and distinct scale shifts from the screen to the final output – I’ve allowed my imagination to roil, embracing the emotional potential of the image.

I am drawn to the subdued power of the Northern Landscape tradition where the representation of the sublime reflects “…nature’s humiliating disregard for the hubris of Western technology”. My work is a personal and unabashedly aesthetic response to facing mortality and the forces of the natural world beyond our control.
