Reprise: Passes 1
30" x 24"
Artist Statement: I'm working on a series titled "Reprise," in which I use some of my old oil paintings
as the basis for digital 3D images. I model, surface, and light the scenes to match
the original paintings as closely as possible, then make Lightjet prints. I'm also
working on an animated flythrough of the spaces I create.
These pieces were modeled and rendered in Newtek Lightwave 3D, with help from
Adobe Photoshop for texture design and image manipulation.
I received a BFA in drawing and painting from Wichita State University and a MFA
in painting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I also
started working with computer graphics. I am currently an associate professor in
the visual art and technology department, San Antonio College, teaching 2D and
