Most of my work is a mix of media, almost always involving photo-collage with painting, drawing and collage. This mixed-media is the best way to set-up the play between various and contrary images that can that way be worked into a unified whole. The play between painting and photography and the play between images of our man-made world and elements of nature are part of the mix. My job is to make it beautiful- not just with visual appeal but also with an internal logic and integrity. The closest analogy for me is to poetry where one encounters disparate images that create associations and connections to real experiences.
