City Fragments

“Every image amalgamation within this series conveys the city as a sovereign fragment of the baroque amassed and relentlessly dismantled metropolitan screen”[Foreword by Joanne Carter].

These images, which are essentially my take on street photography, come from my ongoing series City Fragments. As a mobile artist, one of the things I love is being able to collage images in the spirit of double and multiple exposure.

“Generally, I am interested in human nature and what it means to be an individual in a sea of people”.

These images are created from photos I take as I wander through the world and the streets of my city.

In process, I work an image or series of images into a final image that creates a narrative.

All of my editing takes place on my iPad, mostly in the App Procreate.  You can see more images for this series here

My digital work is centered around the question of what it is to be human. I am interested in the paradoxes between what is contained inside our soft underbelly and what is shown on the outside, what is subconscious and what is conscious. I have been a working, showing artist for over twenty five years. I have shown both locally and internationally. I studied photography, painting and art history in collage, and my graduate studies in literature, philosophy, and theology help inform my work. With my first iPhone, I began photographing again for the first time in twenty years. I am now primarily focused on mobile art: my iPad allowing me to mix drawing, painting and photography together with ease.
