Color Work
This work covers a span from the mid-nineties to the present day. Over the years my process has become more complex, but the basic concept remained the same--combining separate picture elements into a new whole. However, my newest work stretches the traditional definition of photomontage. In some cases photographs are literally grafted on to digitally created "three dimensional" objects. These montaged objects are subject to the properties of the physical world such as casting and receiving shadows. They are rendered, which is tantamount to photographing them, within their virtual space. Being able to create the components in my montages, rather then sourcing them, allows for an infinite level of expression.
