artist working in art and technology.
nor. Either or. None of the Above. All of the Above. Depends on the
day. Muppet identified. Gender is a limitation. A box that I dont
fit in and dont care to. My identity doesnt require a gender.
I dont feel a need to change my body, but I dont feel an
allegience with the gender my body apparently details. My choromosonal
makeup fades the lines of gender, though it doesnt make me intersexed.
I dont fit into any of the black and white categories that gender
presumes to lay out.
Dangerously pegged as a freak in small town Iowa, I escaped in my teens
to Belgium where I found myself much freer to co-exist with the creative
force. From that distance I began to develop my visual voice.
Titling is important to the methodology of my paintings. Titles almost
always come before the paintings. Most of my works are fully composed
in my head before I paint them. The drawings that are the foundation
of my paintings are often done independently, but they exist just as
drawings until there is a title. As soon as there is a title, I can
see the piece in its entirety.
My figures are austere forms, line drawings with direct broad strokes
that I can not help but draw. I immerse myself in the transformation
of these figures into a work, intuitively painting the time and place
for them. Interpreting their story without limiting it or isolating
its meaning. These works comment on the world around me.
Visually, I am primarily self taught. Most of my education was in a
musical vein. My visual work is influenced by the performance and musical
work. The improvisational nature of my compositions and the experiences
of many years of involvement with collaborative music environments on
the internet have made their mark.
My works deal with raw emotion addressing potential violence, violation
and vulnerability. They touch on the fight for respect and control in
life. Degrees of loss of control over ones existence. The force
of will required to move beyond the fragility of physical existence.
They are executed in digital collage realized on Giclée Canvas
and as acrylic on panel with 3-D sculptural elements forcing their way
out of the 2-D painting.
Art and technology are inseparable, and working digitally is a new medium.
Painting digitally or with acrylic, the creative process is the same.
My drawings begin with paper and ink, forming the basis of my paintings
that are created in the digital realm. My computer is an extension of
me. I am tied to it in a way that makes it more than a tool or assistant.
The finished works return to the physical world as Giclée canvas
or photobase & live projection.
