I bought my first computer, a Macintosh Performa, back in 1995. It was used mainly for processing MIDI music files for my composer wife. A few years later, I had a Power Mac and began my exploration of Adobe Photoshop. I never looked back, and ever since then, I’ve felt like a kid who’d been given a really big box of crayons. You know, the kind with every color you could imagine as well as quite a few you couldn’t. And while some artists of my generation had a problem with the idea of making art with the computer, I never did – have a problem, that is. And now in the year 2013, I am looking forward to continuing to use this marvelous technology to create visual images that intrigue, delight, and inspire me.
The images above are a few from a series of digital abstracts which utilize patterns and textures I photographed and then manipulated inside Adobe Photoshop using layer styles, bending modes, filters and effects. The process is improvisational and thrilling. (Click thumbnails, then use your arrow keys to navigate slideshow.)
