Removing ones ability to see clearly is most important to my practice. When the image is clear It defines its own boundaries and tells you what it wants to be. When an image is out of focus, distorted, or gestural it becomes an invitation. The distorted image invites our memory, subconscious and imagination to make sense of the work and what it wants to be. If we accept the invitation, we become active participants in creating the meaning that lies within the artwork in front of us
This ongoing series explores layering photorealistically painted objects and textures over images to create a multi layered and multi dimensional viewing experience.
