ARTIST STATEMENT: Distortion of representations of the human figure is a key element in my work. These distorted figures interact with abstract areas. Most of the figures are female — that first landscape we see as we enter the world. My images are obliquely autobiographical and narrative; each image is one of abseries.
All of these images emphasize and refer to interior space — the space of the prints and of the mind, memory, and emotion. Dreams, fantasy, play, emotion are all involved in the making of these.
I had been a painter for decades. Ten years ago, I started to explore the use of Photoshop, and this medium felt like second nature. The speed with which images can be made and evolve into other images; the ability to save prior renditions while the images continue to evolve; the seemingly infinite possibilities of what can be made visible; the ephemeral nature of virtual products, and the easy storage — all of these qualities inherent in working digitally are exciting and stimulating.
