Cruise Ship Diver

Artist Statement: Technology has changed the profile of the modern landscape, from multilane highways to smokestacks triplets to the hard geometry of cruise ships on the ocean. The computer, a factor in many such changes, is an ideal tool for meditating on the resulting new visual patterns. With a digital camera in hand, I record aspects of the modern landscape that intrigue me. Using a range of 2D and 3D software, I then create images that combine the visual language of photography with the interactive compositional strategies of painting. I hand render the final images using traditional oil painting techniques.
