The line paintings have their roots in digital photography, industrial technology processes, and classical painting. Using personal photographs from Nature as source images the paintings represent a sample of digital information from these images expanded to create an abstract work while maintaining the emotive essence of the organic view. These paintings are created using a process I developed for paint application that utilizes both commercial and proprietary manufacturing technologies and software applications.
I execute the work in acrylic or oil paint using colors mixed specifically for the image. The paint is applied one color at a time, one line at a time. While time consuming, the process allows for a high level of detail and resolution without which the paintings would fail to reach their potential. The resulting paintings capture and amplify the essence of the view by focusing on their organic rhythms and color relationships while removing other objective information.
