Digital Montage

        The Artist Gallery

I am using the tools of digital photography to explore digital photography, but I’m also thinking about digital photography in terms of painting and

drawing. Photographic raw material for this digital work is chosen either because of its reference to colour-field painting or to linear drawing. Using

Photoshop I subvert photographic realism, and by layering to such an absurd degree Photoshop’s influence is obvious and incidental at the same time.

Multiplied traces of the real create a tension between random elements and the intentional that bears the hallmark of digital work.
