Bio:

  • As an artist who was trained in the age of Abstract Expressionist painting, my use of representational imagery developed in lockstep with new technology. In the pre-scanning era, my early digital work focused on compositional structure, incorporating influences from a number of diverse cultures. As scanning and digital photography became available, the imagery gradually moved into representations and responses to specific sites of Cultural Heritage. This work was recognized with multiple grants from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the New England Foundation on the Arts, and artist residencies in France, Canada, Israel, and Scotland, with showings of the work in festivals, museums, and arts centers around the world, including numerous SIGGRAPH art shows. Currently, I am investigating the incorporation of microscopic plankton into my work, thinking about the hidden aspects of our environment. I am also continuing to animate the Glen series, bringing it to a collaboration with a musical composer. The merger of representation and abstraction, of the real and of the sensations of experience, remain an ongoing interest.
