I have been working in two distinctly separate media, painting and photography. I am currently exploring ways to make these two bodies of work "interact" with each other on the canvas surface. One of my recent forays in this new direction includes incorporating and integrating photographs (which I took) with paint. The resulting images require the viewer to question what is painted and what is photographic as well as to reflect on the nature of all representation as inherently abstract. Click any image to see a short animation showing what the work looked like before and after the paint was added.
