I reside and make art in Ithaca NY. My early career starting in the late 1950's was in Photography, beginning with black and white photographs of interesting places like Point Lobos, CA and White Sands, NM. In the 1970s having learned to do color photography I moved on to photographing color collages on a copy stand in my studio at Cornell University where I taught for nearly 30 years in the Art Department before retiring. In the mid 80"s I was suddenly introduced to the computer and started exploring the use of captured imagery to make art, beginning an ongoing fascination with creating digitally. More recently I have developed a passion for abstraction, whether done photographically, on the computer screen, or in painting which has lurked in the background for almost 50 years.
About My Art:
My current images created entirely in Adobe Photoshop using their paint tools are for me a celebration of my interest in abstraction. But at the same time they have evolved from my explorations over the last twenty years of the computer and digital software as tools for creating art. Even though architecture and photography were starting points in my career as an artist I now am pushing forward into new exciting territories in digital imaging using programs like Photoshop to create non-representational abstract imagery. Moreover in some works I zoom in and feature pixels as the building block for abstract patterns, altering them using the powerful manipulation and transformation tools of Photoshop.
